Sweet & Savory Almond Butter Dressing

< 1 min read
Summary

The combination of naturally sweet almond butter combined with savory tamari and tangy lime makes for an almost drinkable dressing — but save it for your salad because it’s even better mixed with greens! Almonds create a creamy mouthfeel without the oil due to their healthy monounsaturated fat content. The bonus is that you also get the protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that come with enjoying the whole almonds versus only the oil.
