Fiesta Ranch Dressing

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.
