Russian Dressing (gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free)

We ate this salad with Russian Dressing tonight for dinner. The salad included carrots, chicken and hemp seeds. Y-U-M. The difference between Russian Dressing and Thousand Island Dressing is mainly eggs. Russian Dressing does not contain eggs. There is, however, a very small amount soy in the dressing because I use Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil in place of mayonnaise. Soy is the fifth ingredient in Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil. Not a lot, but good to know.
In other news, for all my Longmont/Boulder area friends I thought you should know there is another market for arts, crafts and food starting this Tuesday in the courtyard by Red Frog Coffee. Come on out and support local businesses! And if you want to participate, join in! :-)
Also, check out the roundup of Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger over at Shirley’s. It was a fun surprise to see that Jen, at Gluten Free Life with Jen had adopted me! See what she has to say about my Banana Fruit Bread recipe :-)

Russian Dressing:

I used my Magic Bullet for this. The Magic Bullet is great for when you need to puree a small amount, like a salad dressing. I also like to take it for smoothies when we travel because it’s nice and small :-)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp sundried tomatoes
1/2 of a green onion, rough chopped
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Herbamare seasoning
♥, Kelly

    Yum, I was just trying to imagine something different for a salad dressing today. I was getting a bit bored with my vinaigrettes and creamy nut dressings….so this is perfect! I think I may have all of the ingredients! Thanks Kelly! :)

    I’m really not sure I’ve ever had Russian dressing, but it sure looks good … as well as this salad, Kelly. :-)

    So glad you had the pleasant surprise of being adopted. Jen did a nice job of adapting your recipe to what she had on hand. I always like it when recipes can be adapted that way. And, she shared some new coconut love, too–fun! 😉

    Thanks so much for mentioning the adoption roundup, Kelly! I think it’s an amazing one this time around. :-)

    Just tried this recipe but subbed the cashew sour cream for the vegenaise. It was fab. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
