The easiest salad dressings come from a jar (or a bottle) and so does this one. And I don’t mean just the usual olive oil. I mean business! Coconut milk. A divine dressing for salads, steamed or boiled veggies, meat, shrimp, chicken… Particularly heavenly combination is one of crayfish tails (jokiravunpyrstöt), Brussel sprouts (steamed/boiled), avocado and coconut milk. Would change anything for this one! Add some salads and other veggies, season with quality salt and pepper and add the finishing touch with the coconut milk. Can’t get any better, this paleo divine diet! The mix of salty crayfish liquid, creamy coconut, meaty (umami) brussel sprouts and soft avocado would charm anybody.
I’ve been experimenting with some different coconut milks such as Rainbow, Kara and the one you get from this Asian store Vii Voan, Aroy-D. It’s always thoroughly mixed (not separated as coconut “water” and the white stuff) and the taste is brilliant. It’s also perfectly “light” by texture to serve as a dressing. It says it has no preservatives and ingredients include only coconut milk, but I have my doubts. Still, it’s too delicious to give up so I’m gonna put my head in the bush and use it until proven otherwise. Also, I feel fine using it (and I do use it EVERY DAY) so it can’t be that bad. Recommendable, really.
The more thicker coconut milks work well with minced meat, prepared on a pan and cooked down a little. Moist, velvety and tasty minced meat as a result. And coconut cream’s the one to opt for with berries, a true delight.
