Moringa Mustard Salad Dressing

We are now in the middle of summer which means that fresh and crispy salads are the perfect dish to serve up. This dressing is a classic recipe that is easy to whip up within minutes and makes any salad a totally delicious one. Plus, it’s got the added benefits of Moringa, making this more than just a salad: it’s a total body booster! Moringa is packed with plant-based protein and antioxidants to help you combat all that extra sun this summer. Moringa also helps fight inflammation, which is linked to arthritis, diabetes, respiratory problems  and even obesity. So adding a bit of this power plant to your dressing can help your body keep working at its best long after you’ve finished eating.

This recipe is a great one for more than just the health benefits, as well. It is quick and easy to make so that you don’t have to spend time away from your summer activities. More importantly, though, is that it is a very popular one that is likely to win everyone over. The spicy kick from the mustard powder is balanced with the sweetness of the maple syrup. A little bit of apple cider vinegar gives it a fresh tang and the olive oil carries it all together nicely once it is emulsified in the blender. Give it a go and leave a note in the comments when you do!
