I have been so excited to post this recipe.
But I do need to begin with a Disclaimer:
This recipe is NOT a Nutrient DENSE dressing…
…it’s just NOT AS bad for you as other dressings out there.
I go back and forth with my thoughts on DRESSINGS. There are some HIGH FAT dressings that I believe can change a healthy salad into a NOT SO HEALTHY caloric dense salad. So when you do decide to use a HIGH FAT DRESSING…try to use the smallest amount possible.
I do know this…my kids have eaten EVERYTHING I have given them when this dressing is drizzled over the top. I don’t give them much…and it just makes most zesty type meals that much more yummy!
Creamy Tomatillo Dressing
2 cups Vegan Mayo
1 cup sour cream (vegan or non-vegan if you choose)
1 small bunch of cilantro
3 medium sized tomatillo’s, chopped
2 green onions
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 lime (sometimes I use 1 1/2 limes depending on the taste)
1/2 tsp salt
1 Hidden Valley Ranch packet (optional- definitely makes the dressing more flavorful)
Place all ingredients in a HIGH POWERED blender and blend until smooth.
Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (possibly longer)
Use over salads, to add flavor to wraps and burritos, or as a dip for vegetables.
