Sattvic Salad Dressing Anatomy
This Mustard / Lemon dressing is one of the essential basic recipes I love. I like to make this salad dressing with extra virgin olive oil for its pronounced flavor and a hint of pepperiness or pungency in the aftertaste. If you wish, you can use any other cold press vegetable oil instead of olive oil.
The second positive pranic ingredient of this salad dressing is an organic lemon. As you may know, in Sattvic (yogic) diet use of any vinegar is avoided because vinegar is not considered to be a positive pranic ingredient. With this said, I use lemon and other sour fruit juices as a sour component of the dressings.
In this particular dressing recipe, I’m using lemon juice along with the lemon zest. Even though the use of lemon zest is absolutely optional, it is my personal preference. I like to include it in my diet because of the enormous health benefits lemon zest has to offer. It has a much higher concentration of Vitamin C, limonene and other nutrients than lemon juice.
It is always advisable to use organic ingredients. But if not available and you have to use generic (non-organic) lemon you should omit the use of the lemon zest. Non-organic citrus fruits are heavily treated with pesticides and other chemicals that saturate the skin of the produce.
The third component of this salad dressing is the Sattvic mustard. What makes a mustard Sattvic? It has to be made with no vinegar. You can check this easy Spicy Sattvic Mustard recipe.
