Creamy Lemon Herb Dressing


  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/3 cup water, plus more as needed for thinning
  • juice of 1 medium lemon
  • a few strands chives, broken into 1 inch pieces
  • a few sprig leaves fresh dill
  • a few sprig tops fresh cilantro and/or parsley
  • dash or two garlic powder
  • dash or two onion powder
  • himalayan salt to taste

Using a blender, I used the magic bullet for this, combine ingredients and blend until smooth. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency. Taste for flavor adding anything extra to suit your taste…more lemon?…more herbs?…more garlic or onion powder? Chill before serving. Makes about 5 servings.

Store in an air tight container in refrigerator for up to a week.

Notes:I have not made this in a regular blender. The magic bullet works wonders but if you don’t have one this should work fine your blender at home. You may consider doubling the recipe if using a larger blender. Mix and match herbs to suit your taste.

Salad shown consists of romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumbers and topped with cracked pepper…simple and delicious!
