Oil & Honey is the new favorite salad dressing at Diva Marketing, inspired by last month's Zucchini Lemon-Honey Salad.
I had to try it! Toby drizzles olive oil and honey on salad greens. I went a half-step further by misting -- vs drizzling -- the greens with good olive oil, then swirling maybe a half tablespoon of agave nectar over top, then seasoning with salt and pepper.
My report? It's not only very easy -- it's very good, definitely a new standby.
What is agave nectar? It's the plant-based vegan substitute for honey, also a baker's substitute for refined sugar. And Shake off the Sugar reports that agave nectar has a low-glycemic index so is good for low-carb diets.
My only challenge is to not mix up agave nectar with the dog's flax seed oil (on the left)!
