I hope you're enjoying your weekend! As for us we're taking things easy after giving a class yesterday; our first one in a while.
I can now hear the rain falling on the tent as I'm writing this. Such a peaceful and soothing sound... It's actually nice to get a little break from all the heat and sunshine. I know that all the forests and gardens are rejoicing from it.
I was telling you the other day how my yummy dressing collection has been increasing all at once. Well, here's another very delicious one that I've come upon. As I often like to do, I replaced part of the oil called for with avocado and water. This gives dressings a super creamy yet light consistency that I love.
Green Onion Dressing
Posted on raw-food-living.com here
3 (or 3/4 cup) green onions
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup flaxseed oil
1/3 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup raw honey
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
Place all ingredients in blender and mix until creamy.
Recipe Creator's Notes:
This is my favorite raw salad dressing recipe! I eat it on all of my salads and use it as a dip for my veggies. Yummy!
If you don't have any flaxseed oil, you can use 1 cup of olive oil in this salad dressing. The sweet and tangy flavor remains the same!
Something I found out by accident was that the type of honey you use is VERY important! I started out using the brand "Really Raw Honey" which is smooth and creamy, not sticky and gooey like typical honey. But when I ran out, I bought a different brand. The new brand said "raw" and "unheated" on the jar but it was sticky and gooey like typical honey. It didn't work AT ALL in this salad dressing recipe. All you could taste was the oil AND it separated within a couple of hours. I ended up dumping it. So... make sure you use a creamy, spreadable honey!
~ I replaced 1/2 cup of oil with 1/4 large avocado and 3/4 cup water.
~ I've made this both with olive oil and flaxseed oil (about 1/4 cup of each) and it turned out great. I've also used only olive oil and it was still yummy.
~ I used only 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 tbs liquid honey (I found I didn't need the creamy stuff since I was using avocado.)
