Two Easy Salad Dressings (BONUS: Both Double As Dips)

When I tell people I'm vegan they immediately think all I eat are boring salads, and whereas I do eat a lot of salads they are anything but BORING!!  

My salads are LIT 

 

 

Sorry, I couldn't resist... but, in all honesty I'm not sitting at home on a Saturday night eating plain iceberg lettuce. I like to fill my salads with tasty ingredients and awesome dressings! So, I want to share two of my favorite dressing recipes!

As a bonus these dressings work really well as dips. You can serve them with fresh cut veggies or even use them on sandwiches! Did anyone else just start singing Da' Dip in their head?

The first dip is a Mint Jalapeño dressing! It reminds me of a summer cocktail, like a jalapeño peach mojito. It's really tasty and refreshing. This one in particular would pair really well with sliced cucumber or go well on a lettuce wrap. 

Mint Jalapeño Dressing-

Ingredients:

One handful of fresh mint leaves

One avocado 

One peach

The juice of 2 limes

One jalapeño 

Two spring/green onions 

Instructions:

Chop ingredients, dump in blender, run until smooth and creamy! 

 The second dressing I'm sharing today is a tomato grapefruit dressing! It's sweet and spicy, and it pairs well with fresh chopped celery or carrots. It would also go well on a warm roasted veggie sub or with a burger! 

Tomato Grapefruit Dressing-

Ingredients:

One large grapefruit 

One avocado 

One tomato

2 tablespoons of dried dill

2 tablespoons of maple syrup 

2-3 tablespoons of sriracha (*this depends how spicy you want your dressing to be, and you can alternatively use a different hot sauce. I do think this one adds something extra since sriracha is a garlic hot sauce, but to each their own!) 

Instructions:

Chop ingredients, dump in blender, run until smooth and creamy!
