Orange Grapefruit Vinaigrette and a Giveaway

When you embark on a 30-Day Whole Food Challenge, especially the low-FODMAP version, things can become a bit boring.

No sugar.

No wine.

Just whole foods and lots and lots of water.

Excuse me while I cry into my empty wine glass…

When plain water starts to get a little blah, I love to pull out my Zing Anything bottles.  I either stick some citrus in my Citrus Zinger…

My new favorite is the Salad Zinger.  You already know I’m a fan of making my own salad dressing, and I love how this product smashes up the ingredients in the bottom to infuse flavor without having big pieces floating around in the dressing.

There are lots of recipe ideas on the Zing Anything website.  Here is one of my favorites:

Orange Grapefruit Vinaigrette
 
A light and citrusy dressing that is a snap to make in your Salad Zinger!
Ingredients
  • Orange (4 chunks)
  • Grapefruit (3-4 chunks)
  • Fresh thyme
  • Rice vinegar
  • Olive oil
Instructions
  1. Unscrew the bottom of the Zinger. Add orange, grapefruit and fresh thyme. Reattach the bottom cup.
  2. Fill with rice vinegar and olive oil. Shake
  3. You're finished! When you reattach the bottom cup, the screwing action grinds the ingredients, releasing flavor juices and allowing them to steep into the oil, vinegar, or salad dressing.
  4. The recommend shelf life of Salad Zinger creations is three days, if refrigerated. All mixtures should stay chilled if not consumed after mixing. If infusing oil, allow one-two days of infusing to maximize flavor. If infusing vinegar, infusion will take place within one-two hours, depending on ingredients.
  5. The Salad Zinger typically produces one infusion per grind. After the infusion is consumed, empty the Salad Zinger completely, discard used ingredients, and clean before Zinging a new tasty batch of salad dressing.

    These are so neat!! I think I would choose either the citrus or aqua Zinger. You’re right water can tend to get boring when you drink a lot of it! These would definitely add some flavor!!

    I would LOVE the water zinger. I have a hard time forcing myself to drink lots of water and maybe this would do the trick!

  • Jazz September 12, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    The salad zinger looks like a very handy tool for my kitchen however a vodka zinger just looks like a lot of fun 🙂

  • Jazz September 12, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    is there a diffrence between the vodka and water zingers? I could not tell by the amazon descriptions. Thanks.

    • inspiredrd September 12, 2013 at 3:06 pm

      Pretty sure they are the same (just a different color).

  • Colleen September 12, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    These things are so cool – but I think I’d try the citrus zinger.

  • Jackie September 12, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Love this and want one! Good luck with Whole 30. I saw GD last weekend at the gfaf expo. Wanted to join all of you and cleanse but bad timing with culinary school grad this month. Look forward to hearing about it!

    • inspiredrd September 12, 2013 at 3:24 pm

      Oh how fun! I’m glad to be doing it with other people this time, it makes it a little easier!

    It’s tough, but these types of restrictions are the ones that make us better, more creative cooks 🙂 Love these zing products, by the way! Thanks for sharing.

  • Melinda September 13, 2013 at 10:06 am

    I would want the salad zinger.

  • Christa September 13, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Oh it is a tough decision between the zingers but I would go with the Salad Zinger as my first choice! I am trying to increase my intake of veggies and I love to add fresh salad dressing to my salads. Currently I don’t have a functional container to make and keep fresh dressing!!

  • Ashlyn September 15, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    These are awesome! I have been looking for a fun new way to spice things up, and the aquazinger is perfect!

  • Natasha September 15, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    I would love to have the Salad Zinger!!

  • Jess @ Floptimism September 15, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    I’m usually not big on gadget-type things but this sounds REALLY neat! I think I’d go for the salad dressing zinger first, since I’m usually just a plain water kinda gal.

  • Amanda September 16, 2013 at 3:13 am

    I’d like to try the Zing Anything or the Aqua Zing.

  • natalie g September 17, 2013 at 11:44 am

    I would definitely want the salad zinger because I like to make all my own dressings, too. I have never heard of these products and would love to try them!

  • Jessi Boehme September 17, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    What a great way to make your water a little more flavorful and add some extra vitamins and minerals to boost up your immune system, especially with the temperature dropping!
