Balsamic Dijon Hemp Vinaigrette

< 1 min read
Summary

This dressing is creamy from the hemp, not to mention packed with plant-based protein and zinc. Pour it on salads, use it in grain bowls, include it in a lettuce wrap or add it to a sandwich. It’s delicious nutrition in a bottle! Of course, you can use this with the Build-Your-Own-Salad Bowl (see note), but you might miss out on the natural pops of flavor from the vegetables in the salad bowl if you do!

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
You can substitute tahini for the miso if you have that on hand.

Substitute 1 tablespoon of fresh minced ginger for ¼ teaspoon of the ground.

Use 2–4 garlic cloves in place of the ½ teaspoon garlic powder.

Sugar free
Omit the maple syrup; it’s still delicious.

How to enjoy this
Use on top of salads, sandwiches, spaghetti squash, steamed vegetables, cold vegetables and grain bowls.
