Orange Juice and Ginger Dressing

From the UK Thermomix Website Recipe Index

Ingredients

2 cm piece of fresh ginger, cut into quarters

50 gm honey or brown sugar

50 ml (1/2 Measuring Cup) balsamic vinegar

250 ml (2 ½ MC) orange juice

50 ml (1/2 MC) olive oil

Method

With the blades of the Thermomix running at Speed 8, drop the ginger in through the hole in the lid to mince for a few seconds.

Weigh/measure in all other ingredients. Blend 30 sec/ Speed Turbo. Scrape down sides of the bowl and blend again if necessary, then pour onto the hot cooked quinoa, bulgar, rice or pasta. Stir gently to mix. Adding the dressing to the hot grain/pasta allows its flavours to be soaked up more readily.

Add other ingredients of choice to the salad, and stir again to mix gently.

Salad can be served warm or chilled.

Chef’s Tips

Variations: Add parsley and/or coriander leaves and/or 1 tsp ground coriander and/or 2 spring onions in 2 cm lengths. Add any green ingredients at the same time as the ginger, dropping them onto the running blades to be minced or cutting them into bite-sized pieces by hand.

Chef’s ideas for salad ingredients: chopped spring onions, red or orange or yellow or green peppers, celery, baby sweetcorn, mange tout peas, fresh or lightly cooked peas or sweetcorn, carrots, cherry tomatoes, seeds, sprouted seeds, raisins, sultanas, apple, fennel, orange segments, nuts.
