Creamy Cauliflower Herb Salad Dressing

Easy Healthy Delicious Low Fat, Low Glycemic Recipe

Creamy Cauliflower Herb Dressing

Creamy Cauliflower Salad Dressing perfect with Spinach Salad, adapted from a recipe in the Pritikin diet book.

Dry roast garlic and omit agave nectar for a fat free and unsweetened dressing. For a raw dressing, use raw cauliflower, powdered mustard, and sweeten with a couple of dates. You'll need a high speed blender for a raw version.

Cauliflower herb salad dressing keeps well in the fridge for a day or two, but is best eaten fresh - especially if it's raw.
