Summer is officially here, my car read 102 degrees outside leaving work today. Leela is not happy about the heat and prefers to sleep in thee AC all day. Miko does not seemed bothered at all and ready for warm lap time and blanket cuddles.
Hot dishes aren’t very appealing in this heat, but smoky and savory flavors are always great especially in a cool salad. This simple salad dressing is hemp seed based, no oil, rich, and creamy with a savory smoky. But on a cooling salad.
Smoky Tangy Dressing
- ½ cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1 tsp. liquid smoke
- bunch of fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 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.
The texture is smooth and rich making a fresh and healthy salad comforting. It also paired perfectly with sauerkraut mixed into the salad.
In this heat, we always have chilled watermelon to enjoy with meals and share with pups and it worked with this salad.
Creamy and refreshing while being smoky, savory, and delicious.
Stay cool and satisfied in the summer heat with this dressing.
