Reason #24 why our trip to the Yukon was meant to be – Pam introduced us to a life changing salad dressing. While she was preparing it, she described it as ‘making her want to drink it straight from the bottle.’ Oh man, I can relate. I did that with a bottle of chili lime Cholula the other day.
You know how you can add Cholula hot sauce to pretty much anything and it’ll taste good? That’s how versatile this dressing is! It can be used as a marinade, a stir fry sauce, dip, or like Pam suggested, a tasty beverage. I guarantee you’ll never go back to whatever it was you were using before. It’s just not possible.
One of the first things I did when I got home was make her salad dressing – I couldn’t stop dipping my finger into the food processor for tastes! Yum yum YUM. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us, Pam!
Into a blender or food processor, combine:
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 cup Tamari (I use gluten-free reduced sodium)
- 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar (fresh lemon juice will work too)
- 1 cup nutritional yeast
Then, slowly add:
- 3 cups extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup cold water
Blend until creamy and store in a…. kombucha bottle?
If you’re not familiar with nutritional yeast, it’s a ‘nutty-cheesy’ flavoured ‘de-activated’ yeast that is rich in amino acids and B vitamins. Some brands are fortified with vitamin B12, making it an ideal pantry staple for vegetarians who require supplementation. You can find it in the natural foods section of most grocery stores, or bulk stores. I hope you love the dressing as much as we do! 😀
