Moderately low amine salad dressing for those who love nectarines and tart flavors. Also usable as a sauce for chicken or fish.

1 nectarine, pit removed

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar substitute

2 Tbsp pomegranate juice

1/8 C safflower oil

1/2 tsp fresh marjoram

1/2″ nub of fresh ginger

  • Puree nectarine and roughly chopped ginger until very smooth. Add balsamic vinegar if it needs more liquid to puree thoroughly.
  • Add all remaining ingredients and ensure the nectarine balsamic dressing is thoroughly pureed.
  • Keeps in fridge for about a week. Shake well before using.
  • If dressing is too thick, add a little water or apple juice to thin and shake before using.


Very Low Amine: marjoram, ginger

Low Amine: pomegranate juice, balsamic vinegar substitute, safflower oil

High Amine: nectarine (low in tyramine, high in histamine)

  1. This dressing sounds just right for the dinner I am making. I think it would pair really well with lamb!
