This Creamy Maple Curry Salad Dressing is sweet, light but still rich, and super warming for fall and winter. Try it with our Healthy Fall Salad with Kale and Sweet Potatoes for a match made in heaven.
This Creamy Maple Curry Salad Dressing is inspired by one of our all time favourite pasta recipes, Maple Curry Chicken Pasta. That pasta has converted many a curry-skeptic.
When I started making that pasta I discovered that maple and curry are AMAZING together.
When I was thinking about what kind of salad dressing to make for our Healthy Fall Salad with Kale and Sweet Potatoes, I thought about another one of my favourite flavour combos – sweet potato fries with curry mayo.
These two things were the inspiration for this Creamy Maple Curry Salad Dressing. This dressing is delicious all on its own, but it’s the PERFECT match for our Healthy Fall Salad.
It’s easy and can be made ahead of time.
Give it a try! 🙂
