Welcome to my new blog! For the inaugural entry, I’m sharing one of my favorite dressing creations. It’s really zesty and a great way to get your daily omega-3’s while aiding in the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins in your salad. I keep coming back to Manitoba Harvest Shelled Hemp Hearts because they seem to taste the best and lend a cheesy flavor to the dressing.
Creamy Garlic Herb Hemp Seed Dressing
Makes approximately 1/2 cup (multiply recipe as needed)
- 1/4 c. raw hemp seeds (organic is best)
- 1/4 c. unpasteurized/raw apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbs. organic dried Italian herb blend (bulk spice section)
- 2 cloves fresh garlic
- 1/2 tsp. Himalayan pink salt (or another unrefined salt)
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix, and process for about 20 seconds or until the seeds are broken down, scraping down the sides if necessary. Keep refrigerated and use within 1 day. Enjoy!
Note: I became enamored with Manitoba Harvest Shelled Hemp Hearts after trying a small bag from Whole Foods. I bought the 5-pound container of non-organic on Amazon because they were such a screaming deal. I have listed it in my Amazon affiliate store here).
