Wildflower Honey Citrus Vinaigrette


Recipe by: LANEY & LU

Jump to recipe

In this recipe, we wanted to show how versatile tea can be. Green tea lends itself beautifully to be infused in vinegar and can be used in a multitude of different ways. We were inspired by the subtle notes of citrus and spring flowers to create a vinaigrette perfect for a spring salad. The addition of chia seeds and tahini is a creative way to create texture in the dressing while adding healthy fats and nutrients.
