Veggi Dressings

Fresh Cucumber and Cilantro Dressing

1 large haas avocado
2 cups coarsely chopped cucumber
10 small sprigs of cilantro
Splash of flax, hemp or olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt


Lemon (or Lime) Paprika Dressing  - perfect for leafy greens, like kale and arugula, garnished with fresh herbs such as parsley and cilantro. For a creamy contrast, a diced, half an avocado complements the crunchy greens fabulously. Hungarian paprika, with its sweeter flavour and bright red colour (mmmmm)

Lemon Paprika Dressing
Yields approximately a 1/4 cup

2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice of a large lemon)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp yacon syrup
1/2 tsp ground black pepper or rainbow pepper
a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
a pinch of salt (optional)

A small mixing bowl
A whisk or fork to mix

Combine all the ingredients thoroughly. Add cayenne pepper and salt to taste, if desired. Serve with 2-4 cups of chopped greens.
Variation: Replace 1 Tbsp of lemon juice with 1 Tbsp of lime juice for a refreshing change in flavour. It will be milder, more fragrant, and less tangy.
