I love using nuts in my salad dressings and sauces, especially since trying to cut out processed oils it's a wonderful source of good fats... having said that I have now decided to limit the nuts too but still, this is a great sauce/dressing.
Herb and Almond Sauce1 cup raw almonds soaked overnights (so they double in size)
1 cup water
handful of sage
2 handfuls of oregano
handful of mint
2 tbsp lemon juice
- Soak almonds overnight
- Blend all ingredients and enjoy as a sauce/ dressing/ dip
This recipe would work well with pretty much any herbs, I just went with what was growing well and tastes good together. This freezes well and keeps in the fridge for about a week (well that's how long it lasted me anyway). If you're not a salad fan having a yummy dressing makes it much easier to get all the good veggies into you.
Salads are a staple, if you don't like them stick veggies in your smoothies or dress them in yummy dressings/sauces like this one.
Asparagus Salad with Almond and Herb Dressing
Salads are a meal. I don't care how many times people tell me it's not real food- its the real food you're meant to eat! Veggies are the main course, fill up on them and your body will thank you for it.
All the best xxx
