Super Veggie Salad With Creamy Almond Dressing

Super  Veggie Salad With Creamy Almond Dressing created by Prose

I just bought a 3 pound bag of almonds from Sam's club and this dressing is a wonderful way to use them! I hope you enjoy! This dressing thickens up after sitting for a few minutes, so you could actually use less oil(3/4 cup) and the rest water or maybe apple juice and it would be just as good and less calories! The dressing also makes a great dip!

directions

  • Dressing:

  • Place the almonds and water into a blender or food proccesor and turn on high speed to purée. Add remaining ingredients, except for oil, and run to blend and whip thoroughly.
  • With the motor running, slowly pour in oil and run until the dressing is thick and creamy. (dressing can be prepared and refrigerated for up to 1 week.).
  • As stated in the description, you may use 3/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup water or apple juice(or liquid of choice) and get a little thinner dressing. Let sit for a few minutes to thicken up.
  • Salad:

  • Put 1/2 cup of the dressing in the bottom of your salad bowl.
  • Add all ingredients, except lettuce, and toss to coat.
  • Serve:

  • Put several lettuce leaves on each plate and add dressed salad. Serve extra dressing on the side. Enjoy!

    This was a really satisfying salad although my dressing came out a little thinner than I expected. Next time I will use more almonds and also reduce the sweetener (I used agave nectar instead of honey). It's interesting that The Wallaces wanted it sweeter, because I thought it was entirely too sweet. I also had a lot of leftover dressing. I agree with Maito that less oil could be used. The combination of veggies was really lovely. I enjoyed this as part of a raw food experiment, but it would also be a perfect starter when entertaining guests. Reviewed fro Veg*an Swap, June 2010

    I loved the combination of veggies in this salad! The dressing was good, but next time I will lower the amount of lemon juice and increase the honey, as I prefer my dressings a little sweeter. I used 3/4 c of oil to tone down the lemon. Thanks Sharon for a great salad recipe! Made for Holiday tag.
