Greetings everyone! I’m writing from New Jersey, where my kids and I are visiting with my parents for Spring Break. I didn’t quite know whether or not I would be up for blogging while I was here, and what I have found is that I need a mental vacation! So I’m using this time to catch up on my sleep and some well needed down time.
But before I sign off for the rest of the week, here are two more recipes for those awesome Chia Seed salad dressings. Enjoy!
least 1 minute. Refrigerate to firm up.
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
½ cup water or broth
½ cup high quality balsamic vinegar
up to 6 cloves of garlic, minced (more or less to taste)
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
¼ tsp crushed red pepper
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
optional: 1/2 ripe avocado, capers or olives
Combine water and chia seeds in your blender. Pulse a few times. (Or you can put it in a plastic container with a lid and shake it.) Allow to sit for 15-30 minutes until gel forms. Pulse a couple of times every 5-10 minutes. (If you prefer to make the chia gel in bulk it will last up to a week in the refrigerator.)
Add remaining ingredients through sea salt to your blender. Pulse until thoroughly combined. Add optional ingredients and blend again.
