Simple Salad + Almond-Lime Dressing
Almond Butter & Lime Dressing
- bell pepper
- leafy greens of choice
- almond slices or pepitas, optional
- 2 heaping tablespoons almond butter
- 2 teaspoons tamari
- 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup or agave
- juice from 1 lime
- pinch of red pepper flakes, optional
Start with the dressing first so it can sit and let the flavors mingle while cutting up the salad mix. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl, mix well until creamy. Taste for flavor….more tamari? more sweetener? Add 1 tablespoon water at a time if needed if to thin. I added the extra tablespoon water this time around but prefer it on the thicker side myself, these photos reflect the thinner dressing. Dressing makes one serving.
Next, prepare your vegetables any way you like, using as much as you like. Taste dressing once more to make sure it’s to your liking. Build your salad and drizzle with your perfected dressing.
Make your own Raw Almond Butter … It’s very easy to do and it’s a good clean food. It only has one ingredient: almonds…no sugars, fillers or junk. Spread it on apple slices, toast, put a dollop on top of your oatmeal with bananas slices & a drizzle of pure maple syrup, etc…so many ways to enjoy it!
