Making Healthier Salad Dressings--from Whole Foods Market

Serves 8

Nuts and fruit can make for creamy, juicy and flavorful salad dressings without adding any extracted oils. Plus you get the health benefits of those nutrient-dense nuts and fruits. Save money by using your imagination and what's in your pantry to come up with new flavor combinations.


1/3 cup chopped nuts, such as walnuts, cashews, almonds or pecans
1/2 cup chopped fresh fruit, such as plums, peaches, blueberries or strawberries
1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk (or fruit juice, such as pomegranate or orange)
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (or vinegar)


Puree all ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth. For thinner dressings, add a little more soy milk or fruit juice.
