Liven up your vibrant leafy salads with this quick and super easy salad dressing. Nutrient dense and bursting with flavor, this tangy, cheesy and nutty combination pairs well with any salad.
Summer salads are our favorite -- big, colorful plates filled with all the best seasonal produce that Mother Nature has to offer. Yes, we are talking about you, avocado and eggplant. And let's not forget the huge variety of dressing options - homemade salad dressings are really easy to make and are a great way to top up your plate with extra nutrients.
Get the most nutrition from your salad veggies.
Eating your favorite vegetables alongside other foods can be a great way to enhance nutrient bioavailability (the degree to which food nutrients are absorbed and utilized in the body). In addition to nutritional yeast, an excellent source of both protein and fiber, this nutrient dense dressing also calls for raw apple cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. These ingredients provide a great base for any dressing and can even help support nutrient absorption.
Oh, and did we mention this delicious dressing can be made in five minutes, or less, using a jar with a secure lid? We'll show you how easy it is...
You will need:
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 3 tbsp Sari Foods Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
- Add all the ingredients to a jar with a secure lid.
- Secure the lid and shake vigorously until everything is well combined.
