I have been using this dressing everyday for lunch for the last week. It pretty much turns a bowl full of lettuce into a satisfying meal. My favorite combo so far has been kale, shredded carrots, black beans and raw walnuts, but really, you could just eat this dressing with lettuce.
Or a fork.
It's creamy, spicy and satisfying. With almond butter as the base, you can check protein, antioxidants, monounsaturated fats (great for your heart) and a slew of other nutrients off your list. Did I mention it's vegan?
Mexican Fiesta Ranch Dressing (serves 2 hungry people)
2 tablespoons almond butter (I like creamy)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
5-10 shakes of tapatillo (or your favorite hot sauce)
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together and gently toss with your choice of greens, pasta, veggies, etc.
