Creamy Vegan Cashew Habanero Salad Dressing

Nothing complements a good salad like a home-made, clean dressing. Without a dressing no salad is complete. And nothing can beat it, provided, of course, you used high quality ingredients including a healthy dose of cold pressed vegetable oil. Many people forget that fatty acids are needed to support many functions in the body, especially brain health and cognition. Fat also helps absorb fat soluble nutrients from food.


Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked in purified water for at least 3 hours
  • 1 Tbsp chopped habanero pepper, seeds removed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
  • freshly pressed juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme (fresh or dried)

Mixed Greens and Fennel Salad 
perfect with Creamy Cashew Habanero Dressing

Method:
  • Whiz all the ingredients in a blender into a smooth, velvety dressing. Adjust the taste to your personal liking and serve with leafy greens such as romaine lettuce, arugula, kale, dandelion, spinach or mixed baby greens. Enjoy in good company!

If you are on a law fat diet you may want to reconsider your choices. Healthy fats support many bodily functions including cognition, liver and gallbladder function, and cardiovascular health, to name only few. Law fat diet deprives you of these health benefits.
