- Red Onion
- Golden Raisins
- Shaved/Shredded Carrots
- Fresh Clementine or Orange Slices
- Fresh Mint
Smoked Chili Mint Vinaigrette:
- 1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar (may substitute White Vinegar)
- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp Water
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 1 tsp White Cooking Wine
- 1 tsp Garlic
- 1 tsp Minced Onions
- 1/2 tsp Ketchup
- 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
- 1/4 tsp Chipotle Pepper Powder
- 1/4 tsp Smoked Salt
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/8 tsp Xanthan Gum (optional)
- 5-6 Chopped Mint Leaves
Stir the Xanthan Gum with the dressing's dry ingredients.
*Note, mixing an 1/8 tsp Xanthan Gum with the dry ingredients of any homemade salad dressing will prevent separation & help the dressing to stick to the lettuce.
Mix in all remaining ingredients, except for the Olive Oil.
Add the Olive Oil & mix well again.
Immediately toss the salad with the dressing, before it has a chance to separate.
