Best Healthy Salad Dressing

  • Author: Chef Serena Poon


Makes 2.5 cups


1 cup filtered or alkaline water*

½ cup raw organic almonds, soaked overnight and drained

5 oz organic avocado oil (cold-pressed if possible)

1 tsp raw organic apple cider vinegar

3 oz fresh-squeezed organic lemon juice

2 tsp coconut aminos

2 cloves of garlic, halved with the inner seed removed

3 TB nutritional yeast

½ tsp cumin powder

½ tsp chili powder

½ tsp Himalayan pink salt

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp coriander

*For a thicker dip-like consistency, use 2.5 ounces less water.


  1. Starting with the almonds first, place all ingredients into a Vitamix blender.
  2. Using the manual speed, begin blending the mixture slowly until all ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Gradually increase the speed until the dressing is a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Drizzle over salads or roasted vegetables, use as a dip for crudité and crackers, or use as a marinade for any protein.


Can be stored in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
