I recently decided, as part of my New Year’s Resolution, to try to go gluten free to help with some assorted health problems I’ve been having. It’s only been about a week and already I am pretty sure I am going to starve to death! I have a strong love of bread, pasta, and carbs in general. Sure, it is usually whole wheat bread and organic pasta but still….very heavy on the carbohydrates. My new diet plan includes lots of salad, stirfries, lean meat and fruit. It means I am having to get creative in the kitchen and stop falling back on the old macaroni and cheese standby. When I received Homemade Condiments: Artisan Recipes Using Fresh, Natural Ingredients to review I realized that these homemade condiments would be helpful in my attempts to ditch the carbs in my diet.

Adding bold flavors to shrimp, homemade sauces to grilled vegetables and making a new and creative salad dressing recipe occasionally will keep me from getting too bored with my food. Less boredom means less time spent missing pasta or drooling over the cheese crackers I am not supposed to be eating. I have a particular fondness for Asian flavors lately so this Sesame Ginger salad dressing recipe looked delicious. You can use it to marinate meat, as a topping for a salad, or drizzle over rice noodles or a stirfry. Let me know what you think of this salad dressing recipe if you try it and good luck with your own New Year’s Resolutions! Check out the full review of the Homemade Condiments cookbook and start making your own condiments from scratch!
