Recipe of the Week - Orange Walnut Tarragon Salad Dressing

Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, 80-10-10, Low Fat & Raw
I wont lie...I'm a little famous for my salads!  Never will you find a bowl of lettuce and ranch in my house!  I love using the lettuce as a part of the salad, not the bulk.  The yummy-ness comes from the addition of lots of different goodies - like cauliflower, bell peppers, onions, zucchini, fennel, tomatoes - any veggies laying around in the fridge!  Figuring out a dressing without oil was a little challenging at first, but this dressing is by far my favorite!  It's amazing over a simple salad of Romaine hearts, tomatoes, cauliflower, zucchini and red onions (leave out if you're strict 80-10-10).

Orange-Walnut-Tarragon Salad Dressing

1 Medium Orange, juiced
6 Walnuts
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon Tarragon, dried (or to taste)
2 splashes Coconut Aminos - optional

Add 1/2 the orange juice, walnuts, tarragon and coconut aminos into a high speed blender - the Magic Bullet works perfectly. Blend for 45 seconds, let it sit for 1 minute - do this 3 times.  The walnut should have made the dressing nice and creamy.  Depending on how you like the consistency add the rest of the orange juice by the spoonful.  I like my dressing runny - so 1 orange is perfect for my liking.  YUM! 

Happy Eating!
