Creamy Habanero Dressing


Don’t let the innocent appearance of this Creamy Habanero Dressing  fool you.

It just might be the one of the hottest of all the dressing recipes I have ever made, which is a good thing if you like “hot” foods.

I have used this dressing on everything from kale salad, over steamed broccoli, mixed with quinoa, a dip for veggies and even made Habanero Kale Chips with it.

You can make it in less than 5 minutes with a Vitamix and only 5 clean ingredients.

It’s also raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo-friendly too.

Tip #1:  Important:  If you don’t like hot foods, this may not be a good recipe to try.  If you have never eaten a habanero pepper, they are ~very~ hot and I would only use one pepper to start out with.  If you haven eaten habanero peppers before, use either 1 or 2 depending on your preference (I use two when I make it).

Tip #2:  I like to store my homemade dressings in an air-tight glass container.

Tip #3:  This recipe will make 1 -2 servings.
