I tasted each individually and thought they all had a lovely flavor. Both the aminos and the vinegar taste much like the average supermarket counterparts, but funkier (in a good way). I used all three to make a basic, but tasty, salad dressing (that tastes nothing like coconut).
Coco Loco Dressing
1/4 cup coconut vinegar
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1 cup water
juice of one small lemon
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp coconut nectar
I eat a giant salad every night for dinner, so I mix things up with different dressings. TH and I both liked this one, as it is light and tangy. It paired nicely with Bubbies sauerkraut.
On the ride home from work today I was commenting to TH on the contagious, bubbling excitement of the soon to be graduating seniors. I was thinking back fondly to that time in my life, and the immense sense of freedom as the entire world seemed open for exploration. TH said that he actually felt sorry for the seniors, as he thinks that this is a terrible time to be entering the workforce. I hadn't even thought of that, but it reminded me of how I am so much more of an emotionalist, and TH is such a realist. I think this is why we are a good team: I'm usually up in the clouds, his feet are firmly planted on earth, and we help each other to meet somewhere in the middle.
Question: Are you an emotionalist or a realist? What about your significant other?
