Posted on

 I love this dressing.

It feels really decadent, but it isn’t.

The chia seeds make me feel like I’m bettering myself and my community. The cardamom is the not-so-secret, secret ingredient.

This dressing also makes a great dip with veggies. So much better than ranch and way better for you.

Ok, so this is what you need:

The labneh and vinegar are flexible. Plain or greek yogurt work just as well and you can use any wine vinegar or lemon/lime juice for the acid component.

You need cardamom as well:

 Ground cardamom is available at Indian or Middle Eastern markets. Just get the smallest packet they have.

Measure out a 1/4 cup of labneh/yogurt into a bowl:

Add a tablespoon of vinegar, chia seeds, all the spices (don’t forget a little S&P) and combine.

 Taste and adjust for seasonings (if too tart, add more yogurt). 

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week or two.

Hopefully it doesn’t last that long.

 Who said salads are boring?

I made a creamy Cucumber & Celery Salad with this dressing that is really light and satisfying.
