I am a sucker for homemade dressings. Namely because I can load them up with raw garlic to keep the vampires away for weeks at a time. Also, homemade dressings are about one of the easiest items to put together in a hurry…..and you can go wild with ingredients…I love play, especially with flavour.
Salads are something I eat as fast food for lunches or dinners for one, so it’s nice to have a stock of favourite dressing ingredients around at all times.
Play with this recipe, make it your own.
– 1.5 tbsp Chia seeds
– 3 cloves Raw Garlic
– 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
– 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil
– 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar OR fresh juice of one lemon
– 1/2 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt
– Fresh ground pepper to taste
Ideas: add veganaise or avocado to make this a creamy dressing!
Blend all ingredients with hand blender or whisk. Let sit for 10 minutes or so while Chia thickens up. Serve!
This will store for up to 1 week in the fridge.
