 Creamy and savory with just the right amount of spice, this dressing tastes amazing on so many dishes.  It is delicious on noodles, veggies, salads, sandwiches, and even as a dip for roasted potato/sweet potato fries.  It’s especially tasty on this Cucumber Tomato Salad–a perfect summer dish. (recipe coming soon)  It’s so creamy yet it doesn’t contain any harmful hydrogenated oils, MSG, dairy or preservatives that are found in most dressings.  On the contrary, it is full of healthy fats, protein, and minerals like zinc and magnesium.  It is the perfect sauce to just slather on everything, which makes any vegetable taste delightful!
