I’ve been really getting into making my own dressings lately. I like it because it’s easy to control the ingredients, eat healthy, and so fun to get creative with out of the box dressings!
When I was thinking about this dressing, I knew I had to do something different so that I can keep a hint of the sweet coconut while incorporating other flavors. As they say, sweet and spice makes everything nice (or something like that anyway). Of course I had to add jalapeño peppers to this to give it a kick and the best part is you get a hint of each of the flavors without one overwhelming the other.
I paired this with a Rainbow Crunch Salad (coming soon!) and it was absolutely amazing.
Try out this coconut jalapeño dressing with these other recipes:
Add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency.
Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
If you don't have coconut cream, you can use coconut milk. The clot at the top of the can when you open it that has separated from water is cream. Scoop it out and save the water to use in another recipe.
I wanted to do something this Father’s Day and so instead of the typical “Best Dad Ever” shirts or another mug with pictures on it, I chose to create beautiful memories for the girls and their amazing Dad. I took the family to go peach picking at a local farm one fine weekend and boy did the girls have fun! We definitely made memories! We also ended up with a ton of peaches because the girls had so much fun picking them right off the tree, they didn’t want to stop! Continue reading “Grilled Pineapple Peach Salsa”→
Whether it’s watching sports, a party we’re hosting, or just snacking while sitting around the table with friends, this Guacamole recipe finds its way into our bellies often. The husband and I are big avocado lovers and this guac is filled with simple flavors that hit the spot no matter the occasion. I hope this becomes a favorite in you kitchen too! Here’s how I made it:
2 Avocados, peeled and pitted
2 tomatoes, seeded, finely diced
½ onion, finely diced
1 jalapeno, finely diced
3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mash the avocados in a bowl. I like to leave some chunks when mashing as it adds a nice texture. Add in all the ingredients and mix. Don’t over mix, as this will make the avocado pasty. Season with salt and pepper per your taste. Serve with chips, in tacos, or just about anything you want!
