Raw Creamy Italian Dressing

This dressing is adapted from The Complete Book of Raw Food - and here is my modified version for you to try.

Raw Creamy Italian Dressing
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, dry to soak
1 red pepper, chopped
1/3 cup fresh basil
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp kelp powder
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning, dry
3/4 tsp Himalayan salt
Dash of Cayenne powder
  • Soak sunflower seeds first - I soaked for 1 hour
  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender
  • Blend until creamy and smooth
  • Taste test and adjust seasonings to taste
Mixed greens
1/4 red cabbage, shredded
1/2 carrot, peeled
  • Wash and dry mixed greens
  • Shred cabbage or thinly slice - I used a Mandoline slicer
  • Shred carrot with a vegetable peeler
  • Place salad ingredients and dressing into a bowl and toss to mix
