Creamy Dandelion Greens Dressing

Creamy-Dandelion-Leaf-Dressing

Dandelion leaves are an excellent food for detoxification and liver health.

But instead of juicing them, adding them to smoothies or making a salad with them, how about using them in a creamy dressing?

That’s what I did with them in this Creamy Dandelion Greens Dressing recipe and the normally bitter taste they sometimes have is masked with the other ingredients.

I’ve used it as a dressing with a kale salad, a dip for chips and even in my Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Dandelion Greens Dressing recipe (coming soon!).

I gave my youngest son a taste to see if he’d like it.

Well, he did, and so much so, that I had to make second batch because he ate it all!

It is loaded with nutrients and healthy ingredients, and it’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly too!
