Post My Walnut Oil & Honey Vinaigrette for salads

I'd like to share my recipe for a walnut oil and honey (SF of course!) vinaigrette.

I just invented this vinaigrette tonight, to use on a walnut and chicken salad I made. The salad is romaine lettuce with red cabbage, diced baked chicken thighs left over from lunch, feta cheese, and walnuts. And the vinaigrette of course!

Walnut Oil & SF Honey Vinaigrette

Walnut & Honey Vinaigrette (Sugar Free)

1/4 cup Rice wine vinegar
2 TBSP home-made dehydrated onions I made in my dehydrator
2 TBSP walnut oil
2 TBSP SF imitation honey
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Whisk and enjoy. Store remainder in tight container for one week in fridge.

Do not use walnut oil for cooking--it can't take heat!

The dehydrated onions are some I made over the weekend. They are super crispy and so far, my most favorite dehydrated item I've tried, and I'm not even an onion fan, but WOW!

I simply crushed some up in my hand and added to the vinaigrette as a last thought, and they are excellent and give my salad a nice crunch! I could have simply just tossed them on top of the salad instead of mixing them in the vinaigrette.

They turned out to be a great alternative to fried wontons, fried crunchy tortilla strips, chow mein noodles, or other high carb things we can't have that make a salad crunchy. Next time, I will just sprinkle the onions on top, but so far, they are staying crunchy in my oil, but also, I AM eating it right away. :-) Just remember--onions DO have carbs, so I'm not eating very much.

Are walnut oil and imitation honey items that could be found in a regular grocery store? Never heard of them so I just want to make sure.

Overall this dressing is a sweet taste?

I don't know about imitation honey but you can find walnut oil in stores like Whole Foods. I use walnut oil for mayo and it's awesome.

Can you explain how you dehydrated the onions? I've never tried that, and most of the veggies I've tried I've not liked very much - I pretty much just do fruit for my family...

You can find the imitation honey at wal-mart

To make the onions, I just sliced them about 3/8 inch thick, kept them in large slices, not rings, (don't separate the rings) and laid them on my dehydrator. Took several hours to dry them out completely. They turn a sort of golden color when they dry.

I've been making something similar for my lunch at work. I love walnut in any form, I've been a walnut feen ever since I was young as my grandmother always had them at the house. Some of my favourite basic salads are brown lentils with grapes, very simple but surprisingly yummy. Melon is one of my favourite fruits so I make up a melon and walnut salad. I find that a lemon dressing works best with the melon but that's my personal taste maybe.
