Since starting my cleanse I’ve become obsessed with salads.
Thankfully, it’s a great obsession to have coming from a girl that really could use more veg in her life.
Problem is I get bored with salad dressings very quickly so I’m always trying to switch things up to keep it exciting.
Creamy honey dijon, creamy tahini [pictured below], and creamy dill dressings are my favorite right now.
A couple of you were asking for the dill recipe from yesterday’s post, so here goes. I don’t have any pictures for it, but I promise it looks, smells, and tastes delicious.
A natural and healthful approach to the common crouton
6 pieces of udi’s gluten-free bread*, cubed
2 tablespoon ground flax seed
2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoon lemon
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon hemp seed
½ teaspoon parsley
¼ teaspoon sage
½ teaspoon rosemary
¼ teaspoon basil
¼ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon herbamare
Preheat oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set aside.
Combine all ingredients but bread cubes in a small dish.
In a large bowl, add bread cubes then pour oil + herb mixture over top. Stir to coat.
Lay out on prepared cookie sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes [mine took 19 minutes] or until golden and slightly hard to the touch.
Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Store in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
Just use whatever bread you have handy

I love eating lunches outside. It’s still a bit to yucky outside now, but in a couple of months I will definitely take advantage of the picnic tables in the park across the street.
What is your favorite salad dressing?
As a kid I loved French dressing, but I can’t seem to get my mind off of the naturally creamy dressings lately.Are you into raw veggies or cooked veggies?
I’m a half and half girl. I love cooked veggies – roasted vegetables with sweet potato, peppers, onions. But I also like raw veggies with dips like hummus, hard boiled eggs + mustard, or tuna + mayo.
