Hello my joyous reader,
I've started something new over here at Joyous Health and on my YouTube channel - ASKJOYOUS!
My first question comes from Annie @fitquips on twitter. She asks:
In this video I review the following:
Reasons to be cautious about store-bought salad dressings
Some of the ingredients you want to avoid
Tips for a making a delicious salad dressing
Some of my favourite ingredients
How to make a creamy cashew dressing
So don't worry about the calories, but be concerned about what your food is actually made of.
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
One other ingredient I totally forgot to mention in my video that I combine with apple cider vinegar and olive oil all the time is raw honey. The honey does a nice job of balancing out the apple cider vinegar.
If you are curious about the creamy cashew salad dressing I mention near the end of the video here it is.
This is a recipe that will be featured in book #2! So try it out and let me know what you think. It's creamy, wonderful, vegan-friendly, deliciousness.
Creamy Dressing Ingredients
Yields approximately 2 cups of dressing.
2/3 cup raw (unsalted, unroasted) cashews (soak for an hour)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
3/4 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Method: Discard water from soaked cashews. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until creamy. Enjoy as a veggie dip or salad dressing!
Tip: Add 2 garlic cloves and you've got a Caesar salad dressing.
