WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Looking for a healthy way to spice up your favorite fish? This vinaigrette is the perfect go-to! It provides a fantastic balance of flavor and is so easy to make. The fresh mint adds a surprising amount of pungent flavor, while the honey gives it a slightly sweet touch. The olive oil offers a base that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (healthy fats your body needs), just like the fish you’ll be eating it with! Finish off with scallions to add a bit of fiber, vitamin C for a healthy immune system, and great oniony crunch. Make a big batch. You’ll be using this often!
