Vegan Thousand Island dressing, low fat

VIP Membership

by Tina

A salad is for many so much easier to enjoy with a good dressing! We surely don’t want to drench our veggies in a store bought version, rich in bad fats and all kinds of conservatives, sweeteners and additives. That is where a good, easy and quick homemade option comes in like my vegan Thousand Island dressing. The original version is made amongst other ingredients with mayonaise, ketchup and pickles, I have replaced these with healthier, more alkalizing ingredients like almond butter, zucchini, bell pepper, olives and tomatoes.

Ingredients for 1 to 2 salads,

  • 1 to 2 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 cup cubed, peeled zucchini
  • 4 sundried tomatoes, soaked in warm water for an hour, keep the water
  • ½ large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 fresh, soft dates, pitted
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. chopped green olives
  • 1 tbsp. braggs aminos or tamari sauce
  • About ½ cup of the soaking water, depending on the thickness you desire
  • Black pepper and pink salt to taste, optional

Place all the ingredients, except the chopped olives, in a small blender and blend until creamy. Add the olives and season to taste if needed.

This dressing goes with just about any veggies you can imagine or love! I added it to this huge salad made of lots of chopped romaine, cauliflower, tomatoes, fresh dill, radishes, grated cucumbers and a few slices of avocado. And the best part, you can use all the dressing for your salad or share with someone, guilt free!
