Baby greens, pickled hot pepper Brussels sprouts, and lacto-fermented sauerkraut salad with go-to creamy without cream salad dressing

It is easy to get stuck with a fridge full of good stuff - fruit, eggs, meat, veggies, and pickles - but still feel like there is nothing to eat because of a lack of ready-made sauces.  Most of the ones you buy at the grocery store have an ingredient list a mile long and contain some less than stellar components.  It took me quite awhile, but I eventually realized that there are a huge number of sauces and dressings that require virtually no preparation.  The following is one of my favourite dressings and only dirties a spoon!  If you're planning on having a few salads over the next few weeks, you can double or triple the recipe in a mason jar and stash it in the fridge for ready-use.

Delicious Go-To Creamy without Cream Salad Dressing

Makes 2-3 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 T tahini or other nut butter
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 T balsamic vinegar
  • generous pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  1. Combine ingredients in jar and stir with a spoon.

Note: for salads, I like to combine raw leafy greens, pickled, and steamed vegetables.  Add some meat or eggs and you've got a meal! Nifty combinations include:

  • Mixed baby greens, sauerkraut, and steamed brussels sprouts
  • Baby spinach, chopped green olives and capers, and thinly sliced steamed cabbage
  • Baby spinach or greens, chopped pickled grape leaves, and steamed buttercup squash plus raw pumpkin seeds
