Agave Nectar Salad Dressing

Reading Time: 1 minute

agave nectarI hear that agave nectar is low GI and doesn’t give you a spike of sugar, and then a slump of low energy, as honey or pure sugar do. So I decided to try it.

It’s nice, like honey but slightly runnier and without the sharp, harsh taste that honey can sometimes have.

I haven’t done much cooking with it yet. Just this salad dressing and I’ve also added it to smoothies and sorbets instead of honey.

So far, so simple.

I quite often add some sweetness to my salad dressings, partly to get the kids to eat veg. And partly because I like it.

I noticed that Asian salads sometimes include palm sugar. Now I am hooked.
