Creamy Herb Dressing
This oil-free dressing packs a lot of flavor with a hearty dose of nutrients. Delicious to mix traditional greens with, but also a wonderful topper for a bowl or can be used nicely as a dip.
Add variety to the flavor by swapping out the herbs. Swapping the parsley for cilantro and the thyme for some mint will give a whole new spin on the dressing. Use whatever herbs you have on hand, just use less of the stronger herb. You can also adjust the amounts of herbs according to your preference. I like I strong herbal flavor, so lean towards adding more.
