Our Christmas tree is finally up and I put enough lights on it for a few trees I think!
Christmas cheer is in the house too, these two have been peacefully sharing the cuddle cube bed in front of the fireplace which is rare.
And lemon trees are in full bloom, I scored a huge bag of lemons from my sister to use up and more keep showing up at work.
I used lemon juice to make simple, oil free, baked lemon dill potato wedges that came out good. And used one up in this simple, tangy, and garlicy hemp dressing.
Creamy Lemon Hemp Dressing
- juice of 1 lemon
- ½ cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- ½ cup water, as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
This creamy dressing is a comforting, summery flavor to enjoy when winter gets you down. And enjoy it coating a variety of veggies.
The creamy and rich texture packs a bright citrus zing and pairs well with a hearty meal salad.
The strong flavor would also pair well with beans, grains, and many hearty salad ingredients.
