CREAMY LEMON HERB DRESSING

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts
  • juice of 1 medium lemon
  • a few strands chives, broken into 1 inch pieces
  • a few sprig leaves fresh dill
  • a few sprig tops fresh cilantro and/or parsley
  • dash or two garlic powder
  • dash or two onion powder
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup water, plus more as needed for thinning

PREPARATION

  1. Using a blender, I used the magic bullet for this, combine ingredients and blend until smooth.
  2. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.
  3. Taste for flavor adding anything extra to suit your taste…more lemon?…more herbs?…more garlic or onion powder?
  4. Chill before serving. Makes about 5 servings.
  5. Store in an air tight container in refrigerator for up to a week.

 

Enjoy! Have a safe weekend!
