Spring celebration salad

Asian Spring Dressing

4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 clove of minced garlic
teeny bit of Asian hot sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 lime’s juice
Either: 1/4 tsp raw sugar or 1 tsp of a sweet fruit puree*

Combine ingredients and whisk.

*You can use 1 whole banana and 1 cored and sliced apple and 1 cup of water. Toss it into a blender and voila! Now you have sweet fruit puree that you can use instead of sugar. Sugar spikes insulin while a fruit puree would not be nearly as damaging. Store the puree in a sealable container and store in fridge.
