Orange blossom and lemon syrup dressing

FODMAP Friendly, gluten free, vegan, and suitable for sweet or savoury applications
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time14 mins
Total Time19 mins


  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp orange blossom water
  • 1 tbsp sugar (I have only used white but brown or coconut would probably work too)


  • Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small saucepan over a low to medium heat. Stir intermittently, and continue to cook until the mixture becomes a syrup - about 5-10 minutes. 
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge, and use within a week or so.


This recipe makes enough for one medium sized salad. You can scale up if you need to. 
This recipe also works in sweet applications - my favourite way to use it is to drizzle it over fresh fruit, or use it to oven roast strawberry slices.
