Nourished Kids: Dairy Free Green Dressing
As a mom of a kid who doesn’t exactly love vegetables, I am always looking for ways to make them more enticing, whether that means cutting them into fun shapes, preparing them in unique ways, or experimenting with different dips. This dressing is one of my favorites to use as a veggie dip because it is delicious, easy to make, and I mean just look at that color!
Adapted from simplyrecipes.com
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 3/4 cup dairy free yogurt (coconut or almond)
- 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped tarragon
- 2 Tbsp. chopped chives
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- Salt and black pepper to taste
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. Use as a dip or over salad. It should last about a week in the fridge.
The verdict on this dressing? The first time I offered it, my son was not interested. I tried again the next day, and after a few shy tries he happily dipped his carrots (and everything else on his plate) in the dressing. Time to make more!
