Salad Dressing?
Are any salad dressings allowed on Paleo?

I think just what you put on your self-like olive oil and balsamic, etc. Do you have the Paleo Solution-He talks about these options in the book.

I don't eat many salads because I blend my spinach in my vitamix.

I add vinegar and water to a little of either of these for a dressing:

Garlic sauce/paste:
1-2 heads of garlic, peeled
2-3T lime or lemon juice
1/2tp salt
1/3 cup olive oil (can use evoo but it's a bit strong)

Puree everything but the oil in a food processor or blender then add the olive oil and blend. Taste and add salt if needed.

Cilantro and Garlic Sauce
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 a small onion, roughly chopped
1/2-1 jalapeno (depends on how hot you want it)
1 bunch cilantro, leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1T lime juice or vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil

Pulse the garlic, onion and jalapeno until it's a fine chop, then add the cilantro and pulse to break up. Add everything else and blend to desired consistency.

I use both of these to flavor stir fries, both go well with fish, chicken and pork. If you use butter, the garlic one makes a really nice garlic butter for shrimp as a dip

I combine in a bowl, olive oil, grated garlic,red wine vinegar, blob mayo, cracked black pepper

sometimes I mix mayo/el pato salsa (can)

I really like Braggs's Olive oil and ACV, but being that it's paleo, I think just a good dollup of mud will work in a pinch.:hyst:
