The best healthy salad dressing plus taking on the fear of good fats

This creamy healthy salad dressing adds a luscious mouthfeel while providing the necessary healthy fats that allows your body to better absorb the nutrients from your salad ingredients. The dressing is so versatile. It makes eating salad easy by binding together dry salad ingredients including greens, avocado, tomatoes, shredded carrots or beets, small tinned fishes (sardines, mackerel, anchovies), nuts etc. Another great way to use this is to spoon this beauty onto baked sweet potatoes or other baked root vegetables for an instantly gorgeous healthy lunch. It’s a staple in my house.
