Moringa…

It’s not a new dance move or exercise fad, but a nourishing superfood you can easily add to your family’s menu.

Moringa is a lush, green tree native to parts of Asia and Africa. The deeply nutritious leaves contain a surprising amount of vitamins and minerals — specifically B vitamins and Vitamin A and a host of essential amino acids. (Learn just how amazing moringa is!)

WFN’s moringa is grown in India, hand-picked, and dried in the shade to preserve the integrity of the essential nutrients packed into each leaf.

It’s used in both leaf and powder form and often added to curries, chutneys, green smoothies, and soups.

I personally enjoy moringa powder stirred into yogurt with fresh blackberries. It has a slightly nutty, delicately green flavor.

Shake up this Moringa Sesame Vinaigrette and pour over a dark, leafy green salad with your favorite vegetables and even fruits if you like. Berries bring even more antioxidant goodness to the party. A pop of sweet juiciness is a lovely contrast to the tartness of the vinaigrette. Toasted almonds give a good crunch and are healthier than croutons.

How To Make The Perfect Moringa Sesame Vinaigrette

Don’t always follow the formula!

Generally, vinaigrettes need an oil-to-vinegar ratio of 3:1. If you get that mixed around, you’ll know it right away — trust me on that!

Vinegars can vary in tartness, so 3:1 is not always perfect.

This recipe doesn’t follow that formula, however. I tamed the vinegar by using half vinegar and half lemon juice.

It’s still nicely tart, but won’t make you spontaneously duck-face when you taste it!

Adjust the amount of moringa to suit your taste by adding 1 teaspoon at a time and tasting before adding more. Dipping a piece of lettuce in the dressing and tasting it will give a more accurate representation of the flavor than just tasting from a spoon. Keep in mind also that the flavors will develop more as the dressing sits.
