Creamy Lemon Garlic Dressing

When I embarked on my whole foods journey, a whole world of dips and sauces opened up to me. I love experimenting with different oils, seeds, and seasonings to give our salads, buddha bowls and roasted vegetables a little extra "Je ne sais quois".

This recipe is just that, a beautiful addition to already perfect delicious whole foods. It is now one of our weekly staples, and I can't get enough! I use it on salads, on roasted veggies... I've even drizzled it on spectacular gluten free toast topped with fresh greens, mashed Butternut squash, chickpeas and pumpkin seeds. Try it on your sandwich, dip your sweet potato fries in it, and you will fall in love too!
