Recipe: Buddha’s Hand Salad Dressing

January 24, 2014

Michelle spotted this otherworldly Buddha’s Hand citrus fruit via White on Rice Couple and decided we had to share Todd and Diane’s creative use for the wacky fruit.

Above: Buddha’s Hand citrus looks like a spooky version of a lemon, but it’s actually its own distinct fruit in the citrus family. Unlike the lemon, it doesn’t have juice or pulp, but what it lacks in juiciness, it makes up for in zest (and scent!).

Above: Ignore the fact that this looks like a severed finger and admire all that tasty zest instead.

Above: Todd and Diane served the dressing on a simple salad of peppery arugula and prosciutto. I think I’d try it on a salad of arugula and avocado with a handful of roasted almonds for an added protein kick.

Combine ingredients together in a bowl or jar and mix well. For enhanced flavor, allow the vinaigrette to marinate overnight. Enjoy.
