PCOS Health: Dress Up Your Salads (Part 2)

saladSalads are a great way to help you lose or control weight to help better manage your PCOS symptoms. Dressings can make all the difference to how salads taste and here’s a way to spice up a traditional tomato offering with an antioxidant-rich dressing, which can also be used as a light sauce for firm white fish or a grilled chicken breast.

Ingredients: 3/4 lb of plum tomatoes or other variety, 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1-2 teaspoons of light brown sugar, 1 small, roughly-chopped clove of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of mild paprika, 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil, plus coarse salt and ground pepper to taste.

With a paring knife, cut a shallow x in the bottom of the tomatoes. Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil, add the tomatoes and boil for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomatoes to a bowl.

When cool enough to handle, peel and discard their skin, cut into quarters lengthwise and discard seeds. Then transfer the tomatoes to a blender, add vinegar, sugar, garlic and paprika and puree until smooth. Add oil in a steady stream, blending well. Season with salt and pepper. To add a little extra heat, use a hot paprika instead of a mild one or add a touch of cayenne pepper.
