~ Creamy Onion Dressing ~

My hubby always takes a salad with him to work so I try and make new dressing so that he doesn't have to have the same thing everyday. This was one of my best if I do say so myself, the onion didn't overpower, it was a bit like a fancy ranch.

1/2 cup of your homemade mayo
1/4 cup plain yogurt, we use Nancy's Whole Milk Plain Yogurt, it is thick like sour cream.
1-2 small green onions, chopped fine
2 tsp coconut aminos or tamari
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp each sea salt, basil, paprika few dashes of cayenne or more if you like a little zip

Mix together and chill if you have time. Even if you don't usually use cayenne, put a dash in there anyway. Cayenne is great for your circulatory system. The advantage to making your own dressings is that they are not filled to the brim with preservative or additives, you save money, and they taste so much better. Citric Acid is used quite a bit in food as a way to preserve naturally, but almost all citric acid comes from China and is made of GMO corn, not something you want to be eating even in moderation.
