Blend fresh sweet clementine oranges, with a hint of ginger, a nice light vinegar, seeds or nuts and some spicy red pepper flakes; to create a lively and delicious, rich and creamy, low fodmap salad dressing.

If you don't have pumpkin seeds, peanuts work too. The ginger is optional.

Onion-free and garlic-free, this salad dressing is low FODMAP. Also works great as a tempeh marinade or sauce. Healthy, a bit sweet, salty, and satisfying, with a spicy kick.

The seeds act as a thickener, and makes it creamy and rich. Try out different white wine vinegars, you may be surprised how different they can taste from each other.

Keeps in the fridge for 4-6 days.

Minor separation occurs, mix lightly before serving.



  • 1 cup orange 3 small mandarins or clementines, fresh, peeled
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds whole, roasted and salted, or peanuts. But pumpkin seeds are more sophisticated a flavour, and more nutritious.
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar the better your vinegar tastes, and smells to you, the better the dressing will be
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes crushed, spicy, or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp salt add more to taste
  • ½ tsp ginger powder


  1. Peel the oranges and separate the segments. I don't worry about seeds, I just blend them in.

  2. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.

  3. Blend until smooth.

  4. Taste and adjust amounts to your preference.

  5. Spoon over your salad and mix in.

Recipe Notes

Store in a container in the fridge for 4- 6 days. Slight separation may occur, stir or shake before using.

If you want it thicker, increase the amount of seeds or peanuts. 

I buy bulk pumpkin seeds at Costco.
