First Do No Harm

Super Creamy French Salad Dressing

Ingredients (as always, as organic as possible)

1 cup thin coconut milk
flax oil (optional)
Ĺ cup apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup ketchup (our home made version with Organic Zero)
Juice of one lemon
1 Cup Organic Zero (actually, just under a cup) or Erythritol or 2/3 Tsp Better Stevia
1 medium Sweet Onion
2 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt

1 pinch fresh crushed garlic (optional)

NOW Erythritol - 1 Lb. - Unflavored

In a blender combine the lemon juice, salt, onion (chopped), and Organic Zero/Erythritol. Blend on a low setting till everything is blended together.  Turn up the blenderís speed to somewhere in the middle. (You can add the optional pinch of garlic at this point). Add your coconut milk (and the variation: see below).

Editor's Note: the type of onion you use is really up to you. The white onion is the most potent. Then you have a red onion, yellow onion, and a sweet onion. For most recipes that are sweet, the sweet onion is a nice addition. However, some like their onions more potent. Additionally, a red onion blended in will modify the color. It's really up to you.

Combine the ketchup and vinegar (just easier to get all the ketchup into the blender without using a spatula) into one container and add pouring slowly.

The dressing comes out creamy with a slightly pink color and makes approximately one quart of dressing.

Editor's Note: because you are health conscious, you have probably read about the problems with buying extra virgin olive oil; that most of the time you are being ripped off. This is why I can recommend getting your olive oil (and apple cider vinegar) from Braggs. They make quality products and you just cannot go wrong with them.

One variation of this is to add only a half cup of thin coconut milk and a half cup of flax oil. Flax oil is not burned off like most fats; your body uses it for a variety of processes and every cell in your body needs it. When using flax oil, we are not counting the calories.

In Minnesota we love mixing French and Blue Cheese together, so you might want to try our Blue Cheese Dressing or just sprinkled blue cheese crumbles on top when you serve the salad.
