Ranch-ish Dressing

June 02, 2016

ranch dressingAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Okay, so I haven’t had real Ranch dressing in about 20 years. BUT. I will say that this is the closest thing to my memory of it, which is very, very good. And besides, what is “real Ranch dressing” anyway?

Those of us who grew up in the 80’s remember the advent of “Cool Ranch Doritos,” which while weirdly tasty/addictive will make your hair fall out and over time, kill you (only a slight exaggeration). Chives, dill, and a little bit of creamy tang go a long way to reproduce the satisfying, traditional Ranch flavor.

This nutrient-packed dressing can be used on salads or to make your steamed vegetables, grains, or grilled fish instantly more exciting. I use it with avocado and cilantro over “paleo” fish tacos in which the corn tortilla is replaced with a fresh green cabbage leaf.

1/3 cup filtered water
½ cup hemp seeds
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
2 tsp dried dill (nearly double this if using fresh)
1 tbsp fresh chives, roughly chopped
¼-1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ scant tsp dried onion (optional)
¼-1/2 tsp salt

Place all ingredients except dill and chives in a blender or Vitamix, and blend until smooth and creamy.
Add dill and chives and process until they are chopped and uniformly distributed. Pour over everything and enjoy.

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
