Okay guys – get this. I have found the holy grail of salad dressings. This yeast dressing is the best thing… ever.

No really – my taste buds have never been so happy. And I’m fairly certain your life will finally be complete once you taste it.

But what’s even better is that dressing up salad is not where the fun ends – oh no, my friend – this dressing will jazz up anything on your plate that feels a little boring.

Steamed vegetables? Check

Piece of chicken? Check

Pancakes? Will never want to go sweet again.

What’s even BETTER is that this dressing is healthy, unlike all that nasty dressing at the grocery store. Even organic, shamncy dressings always tend to have unhealthy polyunsaturated oils in them. I have honestly never seen a commercial salad dressing that didn’t have questionable ingredients in them.

Therefore, I feel it’s always a good idea to make your own. But don’t worry – after this stuff, you will NEVER want to go back!!!

Okay. I know, I know. You get the point. I’m enthusastic about it. But I can’t help it! I can’t hold back the enthusiasm in the video either. Check out the tutorial:

Yeasty Dressing Recipe

The recipe is from Hollyhock Learning Centre on Cortes Island, BC. They have a full cookbook, if you’re interested in some yummy, healthy recipes.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup nutritional yeast (must be nutritional yeast, other yeasts do not work!)
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup tamari or soy sauce (I prefer tamari because it’s more flavourful and gluten free)
1/3 cup raw apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp crushed garlic (I usually throw in somewhere around 3 to 6 whole cloves in there)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil (approximately… give or take)

Instructions:

Throw everything in a blender and bllleeend, baby, blend. Seems to make somewhere between 2 and 2.5 cups of sauce… keep it in the fridge; stays good for ages (but won’t last that long once you taste it!!); shake ‘er up before eating each time.

Also, my friends that I recently visited on Lasqueti were, concidentally, also majorly into yeasty dressing, and they used balsamic vinegar and tahini in place of soy sauce. So it appears you can play around with this yeast/garlic/oil/ACV theme and it still tastes amazing, no matter what you do.

Enjoy, my friends ๐Ÿ™‚

Lol – if you don’t like this dressing as much as I do, it’s okay. Just humour me.ย
