Healthy Salad Dressings, Vinaigrettes, Salsa and more!

Orange Cashew Dressing: 

Basic Salad Dressing:
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp tamari
1 Tbsp mustard
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1 lime or lemon or orange (you pick!)
1 Tbsp agave nectar or raw honey
1 tsp vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp wheat germ
Water to desired consistency
Whisk the ingredients together in a bowl or quickly blend couple seconds in vita-mix.

Dijon Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 to 2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, diced
Whisk away!

3 large tomatoes (cut in half or quarters)
1 jalapeno pepper (remove seeds)
2 cloves garlic
1 cup cilantro
1 small onion (cut in half) or 2 green onions
Juice of 1 lime
Sea Salt if you desire.....I don't use any salt.
Blend all together until desired consistency.  In my Vita-Mix it takes 5 seconds. 
I love this salsa served fresh!   I pour it over my garden burgers.  My family likes blue chips with it.  You can use it for crackers, pita bread, or toasted corn tortillas.  Yummy!

Enjoy the recipes!
