A zesty, tasty, kumquat dressing! Perfect for a kale salad.
Remember in this video how I showed you guys just how easy it is to make your own salad dressing? This is one of my all time favorites. I do not get kumquats very often, they are kind of hard to find in Utah, but they are sooooo good! I lived in San Diego for a while, and ate them a lot. Then moved and didn’t have them for a few years. My sister used to live in CA, and whenever I would visit I would eat all the kumquats off her tree! It is one of my favorite citrus fruits, and I grew up eating it a lot. So I had fun making this dressing.
When it comes to kumquats, you don’t peel them. The outer skin is sweet, and the interior is sour and tangy! Which makes it the perfect citrus fruit for a salad dressing. And particularly good for a dressing that goes on a bitter green like Kale! I am obsessed with this dressing. And it is SO EASY to make!
And this dressing is pretty too! Isn’t it so pretty? I love that bright orange color. And the flavor matches the intensity of color. Pretty food also tastes better. Haha!
I will be sharing a salad early next week that is amazing with this dressing. It is my Kumquat and Kale Power Salad and it is packed full of deliciousness, and topped with this killer dressing. But until then, make this dressing and eat it on everything. It takes 5 minutes in a blender, and stores in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week!
Let’s get to this delicious-ness now! Huh?
