Cilantro Dressing (Deep S)

IMG_00000695_hdrI have begun my first THM Fuel Cycle and I needed a delectable deep S dressing, In the book there is a heavy emphasis on using Greens for your Deep S days. What is my favorite Green you ask? CILANTRO! I came up with this recipe in order to pack more super-food punch into my salad. Cilantro has all of the antioxidant and crime fighting power of other greens and bonus: it helps alkalize your blood. This recipe has 8 simple ingredients that most will have on hand.

Ingredients

  1. 1 bunch Cilantro(Stems and all)
  2. 1/4 small white onion
  3. 1 clove garlic
  4. 1 tsp Salt (or to taste)
  5. 1TBS Nutrional yeast
  6. 2TBS Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  7. 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    (more or less depending on the size of your bunch of cilantro)

Wash and rough chop Cilantro bunch, place into your blender or food processor with all ingredients and half of the oil, blend on high for around 2 minutes (pausing to scrape down the side so everything is incorporated)  you will notice it take on a creamy looking consistency. Slowly drizzle the remaining oil continuing to blend on high. Pour it into a washed mason jar or your favorite glass container that holds at least 16 oz (I used an recycled salad dressing bottle) store it in the fridge. It will be a thick dressing similar to the texture of a ranch dressing with out all the carbs.  Makes about 2 cups of dressing.  Your serving size is 2 TBS for 15 g of good healthy fat per serving. For a heavy or Deep S you are welcome to have a larger serving I poured it over my salmon last night mmmm delicious!
