Creamy Salad Dressing

CREAMY SALAD DRESSING

Makes enough dressing for 2 large salads, serving 5-6 people each.

4 Tbs. raw, shelled hempseeds

2 whole scallions, washed and roots trimmed off, cut into 1” long pieces

2 twists freshly ground pepper

½ cup seasoned rice vinegar (low-salt, low-sugar version if possible)

1.         Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.  A high powered blender, such as a Vitamix®, makes the smoothest dressing.

Note: Larger amounts (triple or quadruple recipe amounts) can be made and stored in refrigerator.  After refrigerating, shake well to mix before serving.

Options:

If fresh scallions are not available, or desired, you can substitute 1tsp onion powder and ½ tsp garlic powder in place of the scallion.   Without the scallion the dressing will be creamy but less thick.

Variations:

Add to taste any of the following:

ginger (dried)

fresh cilantro

fresh red onion

“Thai” version -

½ lime juice, ½ seasoned rice vinegar

cilantro

soy sauce

basil
