This delightful fat-free and sugar-free dressing is easy to make and freezes well. It is the star of the Leafy Holiday Salads. I like to make up a double batch or two and keep it in my freezer to avoid extra work at the last minute on the holiday.

2 tbsp crystallized ginger
2 Medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup peeled sweet orange –diced to measure
