Gracious Living Creamy Apricot Salad Dressing | sivanandabahamas.org

Gracious Living Creamy Apricot Salad Dressing

Oddly delicious and always nutritious! Recipe thanks to Grace Van Berkum.

  • 1 handful 6-8 soaked organic apricots (Soak your dried fruit in water overnight, or at least a few hours. This makes it easier to digest and also easier to blend as it softens them. Use the apricot water for cereals, puddings, or smoothies.)
  • 1 tbsp unpasteurized miso paste
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flax oil
  • a small piece ginger
  • 3 cups water (add more water if it’s too thick)
  • Add sea salt if desired but the miso usually makes it salty enough.

Blend all ingredients until creamy and smooth. Store in mason jar in fridge and just shake it up before using. Will keep about a week.
