Basic Raw Salad Dressing Recipe

Raw salad dressings are wonderful tasting and healthy


This recipe for raw salad dressing is so good and easy to make, you’ll never go back to bottled dressings again!

Makes 2 cups of dressing

This raw salad dressing recipe makes 2 cups of dressing, which you can store in the refrigerator for up to one week. If your blender or food processor is not large enough to accommodate all of the ingredients at once, simply make this recipe in batches and combine them when you’re done.

1/2 cup cashews

Cashews are a great source of protein and monounsaturated fat, which have both been associated with lower cholesterol levels. They’re also high in calories and fat (around 50 grams per 1/2 cup serving), so you’ll want to keep portions small.

The main concern here is saturated fat–a single serving contains almost half your daily allowance!

1/2 cup water
  • Use purified water, not tap water.
  • If you’re using a high-speed blender and the dressing is too thick, add more water (1/4 cup at a time).
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes

  • Nutritional yeast is a good source of B vitamins, which are essential for energy production and metabolism.
  • Flakes are easier to use than powder, and they have a nutty taste that’s great for salads or anywhere else you want to add some umami flavor.
2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • Lemon juice is a natural preservative and a good source of vitamin C.
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a fermented liquid made from apples. It’s used in salad dressings, marinades and sauces because it has a tart flavor that enhances the taste of other foods. The vinegar also has many health benefits:

  • It contains potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These minerals help keep your bones strong and boost heart health by lowering blood pressure levels (1).
  • Apple cider vinegar contains antioxidants called polyphenols which have been shown to fight free radicals (2). Free radicals are molecules produced when we’re exposed to pollutants like pollution or cigarette smoke; they can damage cells in our bodies. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals before they cause damage so that our cells stay healthy longer!

1 teaspoon sea salt Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy

Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you want to thin your dressing, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.

At Creative Health Institute We Say When Life Gives You A Lemon Add It To Your Energy Soup…

“When life gives you a lemon add it to your energy soup or at least… squeeze it, mix it with six ounces of (pure) water and drink it.”

Don’t let the bad press about lemons removing tooth enamel scare you into not enjoying these amazing juicy citrus delights. Tooth enamel is made of minerals and its ability to withstand acidic substances varies from person to person.  Lemon juice or any other acidic substance can set up an environment that causes de-mineralization and decay of tooth enamel.

Lemon juice’s high acidity, pH 2-3, is due to the high citric acid content of lemon juice. When eating any food  or drinking beverages with this high acidity your tooth enamel will start to dissolve.

So, pay attention to the way you are consuming lemon juice. If you put it in a cup of water, it will raise the pH from high acidic to a slightly acidic range of 5-7 pH. Eating lemons without the water put your tooth enamel at risk of rapidly decaying. Some people drink lemon juice through a straw to keep the juice off of their teeth. The best and easiest way to protect your tooth enamel is to always rinse  out your mouth after eating a lemon, you should do the same with any fruit juice or sugary beverage. By the way, soda pop, pasteurized juices,  and energy drinks have a much greater impact on your tooth enamel does than lemon juice. The average 16oz soft drink is so acid that it takes drinking at least 32 of the same size glasses of alkaline water to restore the the pH blance

My recommendation is that you never drink anything but pure water, fresh raw living fruit juices, vegetable juices and smoothies, lemons always make a tasty addition to any of these. So, why not make a lemon juice diet a part of your healthy lifestyle and enjoy the amazing health benefits you will receive by doing so. Here at creative health institute most of us drink lemon water everyday and it is added to our many of our energy soups and jucices  The natural cleansing benefits are nothing short of amazing.

I love the health classic, Back to Eden, in which author points out that, “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile, and is very good in cases of malaria. Sufferers of chronic rheumatism and gout will benefit by taking lemon juice, also those who have a tendency to bleed, uterine hemorrhages, rickets and tuberculosis. In pregnancy, it will help to build bone in the child. We find that the lemon contains certain elements which will go to build up a healthy system and keep that system healthy and well. As a food, we find, owing to its potassium content, it will nourish the brain and nerve cells. Its calcium builds up the bony structure and makes healthy teeth.

“Its magnesium, in conjunction with calcium, has an important part to play in the formation of albumen in the blood. The lemon contains potassium 48.3, calcium 29.9, phosphorus 11.1, magnesium 4.4. Lemons are useful in treating asthma, biliousness, colds, coughs, sore throat, diphtheria, la grippe [flu or influenza], heartburn, liver complaint[s], scurvy, fevers and rheumatism.”

Make this moment the best moment ever!
