Today I wanted a nice leafy green salad for dinner. But what am I going to put on it? No dairy, no orange juice, no vinegar. So, I came across an idea for a macadamia nut dressing. I tweaked it to my liking and came up with a hummus textured treat. Really awesome for dipping crunchy things in.
Macadamia Ranch Dressing
6 oz macadamia nuts
juice of one lemon
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup expeller pressed coconut oil
1 tsp ranch dressing mix
Salt and pepper to taste
In a food processor, start the nuts and lemon juice a-whipping. Then stream in the water and the coconut oil. Finally, add the ranch seasoning and any additional salt and pepper you wish. Keep processing until it resembles hummus. Or, if you want to use as a salad dressing, Continue streaming in water until desired consistency.
I served it up with my Paleo Meatballs to make a complete meal.
1 lb grass fed ground beef
1 backyard egg
1 cup shredded backyard yellow squash
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup almond flour
Mix it all until well combined. then using a cookie scoop, place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until no longer pink in the center. Serve with a big, raw salad.
