MY FRENCH SAFFRON SALAD DRESSINGS

CHOCOLATE SAFFRON FRENCH DRESSING

CHOCOLATE SAFFRON FRENCH DRESSING
Strange dressing fellows indeed, but you have to taste it to believe it. Exciting to say the least! This dressing is for the adventurous among you!

Makes 3 cups

1 cup French bottled dressing, dark (there a two types of bottled French dressing: dark amber and light orange, depending upon what company makes them; the dark red is what I use here)

1 c. orange juice

1/2 c. non-dairy liquid creamer

3 T. shelled pistachio nuts, plain

3 T. chocolate chips

1 t. dried tarragon

light pinch saffron

light pinch salt

lots of freshly ground black pepper

Place all ingredients into a blender container. Blend on low speed till the nuts and chocolate chips pulverize, then on high speed till creamy. Serve at once or refrigerate for service later.

When refrigerated, the dressing will thicken more. Blend again before using.

I serve this dressing over mixed greens, fresh sliced mushrooms, sweet onion rings and either mandarin or fresh orange segments. The tart of the orange accentuates and compliments the saffron.

Variation: For the less adventurous among you, omit the pistachio nuts and chocolate chips for an orange ice-creamsicle flavor! Use over fruit and lettuce salads.

CHANGING a few words doesn’t alter the DNA of the work. LIKE a mother knows her children no matter the alterations in appearance, I know my gift when I see it on someone else, even when portions are replaced with a poacher’s words. IF you receive the goods, you are as much a poacher of talent, words and images as the poacher who stole them – no matter the purpose. I am not free and you are making me less free by stealing my intellectual material and putting other peoples names to it. CHANGING A FEW WORDS PROVES YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIABLE. STEALING another person's intellectual material isn't flattery; it's stealing. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
