Healthy Green Goddess Dressing

     Its a new year and its time to get healthy.  I am trying to cut back on fats and cut out sugar as well as dairy and wheat.  What? You say.  Yes. Not forever, just for a bit. I love pasta and bread and will never fully succumb to FOREVER.  I am trying to find ways to add flavor to my fruits, veggies, beans, and nuts.  Here is a delicious dressing/dip that I adapted from Oh She Glows.

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup packed avocado flesh 
  • 1/3 c raw cashews
  • 8 tbsp water
  • 5 tbsp apple cider vinegar*
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • 3 dates
 Add ingredients to a blender or food processor and mix until well combined.  Serve with vegetables as a dip or on salads as a dressing.
