A Sweetened Dressing for Spicy Greens


Just a quick post with a salad dressing idea for those bold, spicy greens. I can eat a whole plate of arugula mixed with nothing but this dressing. Make it a meal and add some protein, your favorite nuts and whatever veggies you have available. Enjoy those healthful greens!

A Sweetened Dressing for Spicy Greens
makes about 1/3 cup

Recipe note: I love the flavor and slight sweetness in sherry vinegar but you could also use balsamic vinegar.


  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sorghum syrup, maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Whisk all ingredients together until fully combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
