Simple Pineapple Dressing
Makes About ½ Cup (1 to 2 Servings)
½ cup canned pineapple with juice*
1 Tbsp hulled hemp seeds
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar**
Put all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Enjoy this over a mixed green salad or a fruit salad where you want a little tang. Store extra dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator and use within 3 days.
* Any type of canned pineapple can be used, whether it’s crushed, tidbits, chunks, or rings. Fresh pineapple may also be used, but you may need to add a tablespoon or two of water to help it to blend smoothly.
** Red wine vinegar is delicious when using this dressing on a green salad. Try balsamic vinegar for a little sweetness when used on a fruit salad.
Note: If preferred, add a little sweetener of choice. For more of a savory dressing, add 1 clove of garlic or 1/8 tsp garlic powder, and a little salt and pepper to taste.
