Thai Almond Butter Dressing

There’s nothing better or easier than a blender dressing. Add all of the ingredients to the blender, blitz until smooth, and then enjoy immediately. Blender dressings thoroughly incorporate all of the ingredients, and you can always adjust flavors if necessary. With this Thai dressing, you may need to tinker with measurements to appease your palate, but the recipe is evenly balanced.

Not only is this Thai dressing great on salads, but it also works as a marinade or dipping sauce. In addition to being raw vegan, this recipe happens to be Whole30- and paleo-approved. That’s what happens when you focus on real foods! The raw almond butter provides a nutty, slightly salty flavor that is balanced by the coconut aminos, dates, and lime juice. If you know Thai flavors, you know that there are many ingredients, but they all balance each other out. You have citrus, spice, nutty, sweet, salty, and every other nook and cranny of the flavor spectrum!

One thing to keep in mind when making this dressing is that you have to use a neutral-flavored oil. That doesn’t mean that you go straight for unhealthy vegetable or corn oil; rather, use avocado oil or grapeseed oil instead of olive oil. The recipe calls for avocado oil, but grapeseed oil is an acceptable replacement. Olive oil will alter the flavor because it has a specific flavor that doesn’t necessarily mesh with the rest of the ingredients.
