We’re supposed to be getting many days of chilly rain this week and that’s a good thing, we need it. Except sharing the warm fireplace isn’t always easy, Smokey gets a little cranky when Miko gets in the way of her favorite show.
And Miko likes to lay his toys out at the fireplace to warm them up.
This may be a cool salad, but the kicky ginger flavor in the dressing will warm you up. This savory and sweet dressing has a simple list of ingredients without oil or sugar, fresh ginger, and a thick and rich texture perfect for a hearty winter salad.
Creamy Asian Dressing
- ½ cup shelled hemp seeds
- 4 pitted medjool dates
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
- 1” chunk of fresh ginger
- 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.
I coated a salad of chopped tempeh, kale, apple, carrots, and tomato for an interesting combo.
And topped with Trader Joe’s smokey seasoning blend, yum.
The texture is silky and smooth, slightly gooey, and it coated this hearty meal salad nicely with a sweet and savory ginger and onion.
Perfect way to add vibrant color and fresh ingredients to a gray winter day.
