I am finally recovering from the flu nightmare and had a decent run at the gym tonight that was needed! I can still feel my lungs recovering and cough is still hanging around a bit, but it’s slowly going away. I read a cough can hang around for weeks after a flu while the lungs and airways heal – ugh.
El Nino storms have been hitting hard here the last 3 days with chilly winds and rain, so it’s been getting a little crowded in front of the fireplace to stay warm.
Miko even leaves his toys there to warm them up.
A little wind and rain isn’t going to stop me from enjoying a hearty dinner salad, especially one with a tangy and creamy herb hemp salad dressing, kale, and chickpeas. This dressing recipe may have a hearty list of ingredients, but it has a hearty flavor and texture also for a satisfying meal salad.
Creamy Herb Dressing
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- ½ cup hemp seeds
- 1 tsp. dill
- 1 tbsp. miso paste
- 1 clove of garlic
- ½ tsp dried basil
- ½ tsp. dried oregano
- 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 4 servings.
Its creamy, smooth, and perfect for coating greens with rich flavor.
It looks hearty and decadent and it is! But without added oil or sugar, just good fats and fiber from hemp seeds blended with fresh, tangy herb flavors.
Enjoy a rich and satisfying salad with this dressing.
