Cheers to good health, full bellies, and GREENS!
Sun-dried Tomato Vinaigrette: Great for romaine salads or topping for spaghetti squash. Rich, creamy, savory and satisfying.
Ranch: Perfect for dripping roasted cauliflower (with buffalo sauce seasoning!), topper for salads, and dip for carrots. This ranch is tangy, flavorful, and creamy just like regular-style ranch, but without the dairy!
Lemon Ginger: This lemon-y treat is great for grilled or fresh romaine, steamed collard greens, or freshly sliced cabbage.
Creamy Citrus: A perfect match for seafood dishes (for those pescetarians), topper for romaine or spring mix, or massage into kale. Light, bright and creamy.
Sesame Seed: Great on seaweed salad, romaine, or a dip collard green spring rolls. It is rich tasting with the perfect amount of sesame flavor.
Thai Peanut: Match this will collar green spring rolls, grilled romaine, or topper for kale or romaine salads. Tangy, creamy with a little spicy. This dressing is super satisfying and delicious!
Tricks and Tips: Preparing Vegetables
- Use a potato peeler! Turn zucchini into fettuccine style pasta strips or add strips of carrot to the top of any dish to add color. What an invaluable tool!
- Spiralizers turn beets, summer squash, and carrots into spaghetti style dishes. Eat raw or throw into a pan. Either way, top with olive oil, Italian seasoning, or tomato sauce for a healthy Italian treat!
- Massage your tough to chew vegetables such as kale, chard, and cabbage. Use a little olive oil, lemon juice, or an avocado and get your hands dirty by pressing it into each leaf (30 seconds).
