We all have that friend who insists on everything being homemade. They make their own soap, candles, and laundry detergent, and don’t get me started on their food. They just enjoy knowing exactly what goes into what they use and eat—or maybe they just like to get in touch with their inner pioneer. Maybe you are that friend, or maybe you’ve always aspired to be them but you just don’t have the patience or know-how to churn your own butter.
Whatever side of the spectrum you’re on, today you, too, can be “that friend” with this quick and easy CBD oil salad recipe.
You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to make your own vinaigrette. In fact, a basic vinaigrette only has three simple ingredients—oil, salt and pepper, and a vinegar of your choice. There’s no fancy processing or secret sauce. Just put them in a container with a bit more oil than vinegar, shake them up, and voila! Vinaigrette. You want it to be CBD-infused? Plop in some oil and shake it some more.
Once you’ve mastered the art of stirring together four ingredients, you may find yourself ready for a bigger challenge and a wider flavor variety. The beauty of a quick and easy CBD oil salad recipe like this one is that it’s really easy to customize, especially when you have a wide variety of broad-spectrum CBD oil tinctures to choose from. Here are a few variations for the adventurous at heart.
Everything is better with garlic. For a great savory dressing, add a bit of crushed garlic, parmesan cheese, and Dijon mustard. You can even add a dash of Italian seasoning to really kick up the flavor. With all the savory going on in this variation, you’ll probably want to stick with an unflavored CBD oil.
You can swap out your white or red wine vinegar with an apple cider vinegar to make an apple vinaigrette. Some people add a little apple juice to really bring out the apple flavor. Our apple-mint flavored CBD is the perfect way to make Mr. Appleseed proud.
This one’s a little fancier. You’ll need a blender this time, but as long as you know how to put a plug in an outlet and push a button, you should have no problems. For this variation, you’ll need your basic ingredients along with some strawberries, a little honey, and our strawberry-flavored CBD oil. You’ll have a sweeter dressing perfect for a spinach salad.
As we said, vinaigrettes are crazy-easy to make, but don’t get discouraged if you don’t like the first batch you make. The more you make it, the more you can experiment with how much vinegar you like, what kind of vinegar takes best, and even what seasonings you like. Pretty soon, you’ll have your very own recipes sure to make “that friend” proud!
