spicy micro greens with curry vinaigrette
shown above: dwarf sugar pea shoots, red amaranth, mild n’ spicy micro greens (mix of 8 different varieties), tatsoi, and carrot micro greens
this vinaigrette is wonderful paired with any mix/blend of micro greens – here are the deets:
- 4 tsp curry powder
- 2 tsp water (to mix in with curry powder to form paste)
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- clove or 2 or 3 of minced garlic (love us some garlic!)
- salt n’ pepper to taste
mix curry powder and water together to form paste & let sit for 5 minutes or so
once those two have danced together, stir in the canola oil, mix & let sit for hour to mingle
pour mix thru paper towel/coffee filter/sieve to separate the curry oil from any solids
whisk remainder of ingredients together & then add the curry oil to that mixture
and there ya have it!
a delish zesty vinaigrette to drizzle on top of your side plate of micro greens – perfect addition to the main dish!
