Have you tried almond butter dressing yet?? If not, you need to get on it. This Balsamic Almond Butter Dressing can be used in SO many ways – it’s a fan-favorite. Just six ingredients, vegan, paleo and can be made Whole30 with one simple sweetener swap.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 TBS balsamic vinegar*
  • 1.5 TBS extra virgin olive oil**
  • 3 TBS maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter (or sub cashew butter)
  • 1.5 TBS stoneground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 24 TBS water, to thin for desired consistency

Instructions

  1.  Add all ingredients to small blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. I typically add 3 tablespoons. Alternatively you could whisk in medium bowl, but using a blender or food processor is best. 
  2. Taste test the dressing to make sure you’re alright with the vinegar-sweetness ratio, adding more sweetener or more balsamic to taste.
  3. Serve with salads, roasted veggies, or even as a chicken or steak sauce.
  4. Store salad dressing in covered jar in refrigerator up to 1 week. Dressing may get thick after sitting in fridge You can add a little bit of water and stir well with spoon before using.

Notes

*Adjust according to taste. I like a good balsamic vinegar taste but if you’d like you can use less, or even a touch more if you prefer strong. You can also balance out with more or less maple syrup.

**Could sub avocado, almond oil, or even pumpkin seed oil.
