This clean eating Raw Vegan Creamy Jalapeno Dressing has been essential in helping me to incorporate more salads and veggies into my diet.
It was one of the very first raw dressings I made and you can eat it with just about anything.
It’s creamy, green and HOT!
There’s nothing like making your own homemade salad dressings because not only can you use fresh ingredients, but you have control over the quality of ingredients…like no GMO’s, preservatives, additives, etc.
Here’s the ingredient list for a store-bought creamy jalapeno dressing:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Litehouse Mild Jalapeno Ranch Dressing and Dip: Ingredients: Canola Oil, Buttermilk Cultured, Water, Peppers, Jalapenos, Egg Yolks, Sugar, Vinegar Distilled, Salt, Onions, Green Onions, Cider, Vinegar, Garlic Dried, Spices, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Peppers Chili Powder, Onions Dried, Milk Nonfat Powder, Blend (Whey Dairy, Sodium Caseinate, and Milk Nonfat Powder) Dried Bell Peppers
You won’t find the nutrition and health benefits in a commercial-made dressing like you will in this powerhouse of raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo goodness.
Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions For Raw Creamy Jalapeno Dressing
Here are some expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Tip #1: I have used this dressing on so many things. I like to steam fresh broccoli, pour the dressing over it, then sprinkle chia seeds and sesame seeds on top for extra nutrition. I’ve also used it as a dip for strips of raw red peppers, cucumbers, my Raw Broccoli Balls, as a salad dressing for my Spinach and Avocado Salad and even as a sandwich spread (like a mayonnaise) on my Vegan Spinach Wraps.
Tip #2: You can use 1 – 2 jalapenos, depending on how hot you like it. I also use two, but it’s ~very~ hot so I’d start with one and taste it before adding the second one just to be safe.
