Episode Summary

I’m delving into an unfortunate part of my food history here: My brief love affair with store-bought poppy seed dressing. Maybe I just fell for the wrong one, but the romance came to an abrupt end when I came to my senses and read the label. Hydrogenated soybean oil? High fructose corn syrup? Sodium benzoate? No thanks.Years later I’m working the issues out and rekindling the love, this time with healthy raw coconut fat, (and here), and sweet, sweet agave syrup. And what better vehicle than some of the delicious white peaches which are so very in season right now? Aromatic arugula and fennel make a simple salad that stands out! Arugula & White Peach SaladWith Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing:Serves 2-4Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing:1C young coconut meat, or soaked cashews if coconut is not available 1/2C coconut water, or filtered water1/4C agave syrup1/4C apple-cider vinegar2T white onion1T stoneground mustard1T poppy seedsDash of sea saltBlend all ingredients except the poppy seeds until smooth and emulsified.
