Super Salad Dressing (and Dip)
Ingredients (as always, as organic as possible)
1 medium lemon - peal it by trimming off the yellow but
leaving lots of white skin (you need these bioflavonoids).
2 round tsp
Celtic Sea Salt
1/3 Cup Flax Oil (or Udo's Oil [DHA 3-6-9 Blend], or
even Hemp Oil)
1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
4-6 Cloves Garlic (to taste)
8 oz Cottage Cheese OR Yogurt (see below)
1-2 Cup Cilantro Leaves (to taste)
This recipe is based upon Johanna Budwig's recipe

cilantro leaves, garlic, and cottage cheese and blend it all up till
the cilantro leaves are gone and the color is bright green. Then add
your flax oil, mix it in and refrigerate right away.
At room temp, your flax oil will go bad in fifteen
Stir in (do not blend) pomegranate seeds. I cannot
think of any recipe that is better for your heart.
