Raw Ranch Dressing

I dreamt last night that I was traveling with my soccer team and we went out to eat. I saw a teammate scraping cheese out of her salad dressing and off her pizza. I thought, "She must choose not to eat dairy like me," and I told her I would get her a vegan dressing, like an Italian vinaigrette. When I went up to order my salad, the clerk told me I would have to order a, a corn dog and 32 oz soda to access the salad bar. "Soda is actually more absorbable than coconut water," she added. I found this to be HILARIOUS and was doubled over in laughter for the rest of the evening! It felt so good to be shaking with laughter in dreamtime!

So, I thought I would share one of my favorite salad dressings today...

Raw Creamy Peppercorn Ranch Dressing
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup hemp seed
5 cloves garlic
1.5-2 tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp salt
--Blend all of the above ingredients thoroughly. Then add
1/3 cup olive oil-- and blend again.

Makes an amazing salad dressing and/or veggie dip. I also added it to shredded cabbage, grated carrots and a dash of goji berries for a delicious raw cole slaw!
Have FUN today!!
