Pickle Dressing

Bear with me here. Pickle…. dressing? Yes! It started as something I was playing with because I have been trying to get my greens in and I LOVE a good dressing. I also love pickles, so why not?

Pickle Dressing: Makes about 8oz

  • 1/3 cup pickle juice (just pick your favorite, I had some sweet onion Suckerpunch pickle brine left over so I used that!)
  • 1 cup (packed) baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp hummus of choice (I used some caramelized onion hummus from our local grocery store)
  • Garlic to taste (I had some roasted garlic laying around so I used about 1 tsp of that)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Simply add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth!

I’ll be enjoying this today on a lovely salad I’m lucky enough to have come out of my own backyard!

Creamy Dreamy Dressing

A little more protein, a lot of flavor! A good way to get your kids to eat their greens. Quick, easy, and also good for dipping!

  • 1/2 cup of your favorite hummus (we love roasted garlic hummus or caramelized onion hummus)
  • 2 tbsp pesto (try using our pesto recipe!)
  • 2-4 tbsp apple cider vinegar (to taste)
  • 2-4 tbsp water (to thin to your desired consistency)

Simply add your ingredients to a jar or container, cover tightly with a lid, and shake, shake, shake until smooth! Get the kids in on it and have them put a little bit of the work in! If the hummus is being stubborn and doesn’t want to shake, stir until smooth. Store in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks. (Though I can never keep it around that long!)
