Mixed Greens With Creamy Creamy Vegan Red Onion Dressing

Winter has been really mild in Roswell. If you consider the temperatures, we even had our first day of summer in January. 74°F makes you crave all the foods that we normally eat on hot summer days.

But temperatures fluctuate and it really gets cold at night. Here and there you hear of people getting sick; some even caught the ugly flu that currently runs rampant across the country. I have been lucky so far. No cold, no flu. I follow my motto: stay warm, eat well, rest, and protect your immune system. I start taking double amounts of raw honey, elderberry syrup, vitamin C and zinc around November and continue with this regime till end of March. I hardly ever get sick. Raw food helps a lot. Fruits and salads whenever I can!

~ Creamy Vegan Red Onion Dressing Recipe ~

  • 1 medium large red onion, roughly chopped
  • freshly pressed juice of 1 orange
  • 2 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar or freshly pressed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil (use cold pressed hemp oil if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp chopped hot red pepper, seeds removed (I used red habanero)
  • 1/3 cup cashew nuts, soaked in purified water overnight
  • pink Himalaya salt to taste

  • Toss all ingredients into a blender bowl and whiz until creamy and smooth. Add more orange juice or purified water if the dressing is too thick, or more nuts and oil to make it more velvety.
  • Pour dressing over tossed greens, green asparagus, sliced leeks, radishes, and wild herbs. Stir gently and enjoy in good company! 

Red onions are rich in sulfur compounds, chromium, and antioxidants such as quercetin and anthocyanin. Red onion may help you detoxify your body, prevent tumors from growing, lower blood pressure, dissolve blood cloths, reduce levels of bad cholesterol, and prevent infections. They are better for you than the yellow onions and are best consumed raw.
