To continue on with my series on salad dressings, today I bring to you a kombucha vinaigrette from Jenny of Nourished Kitchen. Unfortunately, I have come down with bronchitis, an annual August thing for me. The kombucha vinaigrette I had prepared yesterday didn’t taste like anything to me, so I certainly could not pass it along to you fine folks just yet. ( I have been downing copious amounts of garlic people, and I can’t even taste it!!!) So I was thankful when Jenny shared this recipe with me. It’s a bit different from the variety I came up with, so I’ll be sure to post my recipe when I have fully recovered my taste buds.
Kombucha is a fabulous fermented tea chockful of enzymes, probiotics and vitamins, along with a wonderful fizz that so many of us love in a beverage. It is a very versatile beverage in that you can add flavorings to the finished tea and allow it to ferment briefly a second time, infusing the goodness of whatever addition you’ve introduced. In my kombucha vinaigrette, I added garlic, ginger, lemon zest and herbs to the kombucha to infuse their flavors and aroma. Then I mixed the seasoned kombucha with oil to create a vinaigrette. I will add that using a kombucha that is on the more vinegar side would be ideal for this option.
That said, here is Jenny’s ‘Spiced Kombucha Vinaigrette‘, along with some fabulous information on the benefits of brewing your very own kombucha tea at home. Enjoy!
