Being the only healthy-food conscious eater at home, I found a lot of untouched ripen or sometimes overly ripen fruits in the fridge and felt extremely guilty if it has to be thrown away. Now that I’m back in my health-food conscious state and I decided to finish the healthy ones before it goes to waste.
On my day two of raw vegan challenge (yes, I’m going more extreme than the initial challenge that I posted on this blog), I found a ripen starfruit in the fridge and because I’m not at all a fan of this fruit, with every inner-will I had, I made a decision to chop it off and eat it later. A few minutes later, I also chopped pineapple and mango hoping that I could eat them all intermittently.
The next day, I had this sudden drop of creativity to blend the leftovers of chopped fruits and make it into a salad dressing. Bear in mind that I’ve never made from-scratch salad dressing let alone raw salad dressing. But i just knew that it will taste good and it DOES!!! It has this tanginess and sweetness of flavor.
I think I’ve converted from uber dislikeness to a starfruit fan as a salad dressing based.
For the salad:
1 – 2 cups of romaine lettuce
1/2 cup of zucchini
1/2 cup of shredded carrot
For the dressing:
2 cups of starfruit
1 cup of mango
1 cup of pineapple
a dash of garlic powder
a dash of cilantro powder.
Blend the dressing ingredients and pour it over your salad.
