Stop. Everything. And make this Chipotle Dressing. It’s everything I dreamed of- and took under 10 minutes. A hearty salad for the Mister who is diggin it! Thick enough to be a dip and stay on your carrot stick. I just want to eat it with a spoon. My “drizzle” attempt did not come out cookbook picture worthy but keepin’ it real and posting. You can double or halve easily.

Chipotle Dressing (vegan, low fat, raw…amazing)

1c cashews, soaked 1 to 6 hours or skip it

1c zucchini (perfect use for the core after making zoodles)

3 garlic cloves

Whole lemon, peeled

3/4c water

2TB apple cider vinegar

2 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce

Optional: 1/2tsp salt or Dulse flakes

1/3c dehydrated tomatoes (raw if dried under 108 degrees)

Throw in high speed blender-love my Vitamix. Blend till smooth. Boom. Try not to eat it all tonight. Substitution ideas- celery in place of some cashew or zucchini. Sunflower seeds in place of some cashews. I’m trying all zucchini in place of cashews next. Any tweaks you would add?
