Miko is such a sweet and supportive buddy to Leela in her old age. He’s always near her when not in our laps, never complains when she helps herself to his dinner, and never goes after her dinner.
He seems to really know she’s facing challenging times and shows her compassion, animals can be so sweet that way.
So is this dressing, playfully sweet with a kicky Dijon flare and creamy comforting texture. It gets sweetness from raisins, whole fat from avocado, and savory kick from miso paste – no refined sugar or oil because there is nothing comforting about that.
Sweet Dijon Dressing
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- ¼ cup raisins (handful)
- 2 cloves raw garlic
- 1 tbsp. miso paste
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- ½ cup water, as needed for desired thickness
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings or so and can also be a dip or spread.
Raisins are a cheaper and fun alternative to medjool dates for a a whole sugar, bulk organic bags are a much more reasonable price and handfuls are also fun adds to smoothies. And they add a great sweet flavor and texture to this hearty dressing.
It’s another super thick dressing which is perfect when it’s packed with healthy ingredients – coat that salad in comforting flavors!
And it paired perfectly with this simple spinach and chickpea salad.
