The salad dressing to trump all salad dressings.. toasted sunflower dressing

I was cooking with my friend Nicola the other day, and she put together this salad dressing from a favourite recipe of mine. Its so tasty!

Colourful salad with toasted sunflower seed dressing


1 colourful salad of your choice!

Salad dressing ingredients:

3/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup dates soaked in 1 cup boiling water for at least 10 mins

juice of 2 large lemons

1 tspn paprika

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tspn salt

1 tspn pepper

1 tspn


Soak the dates, toast the seeds in a pan over a low heat until nice and brown, and add with all ingredients (including water from soaking dates) into food processor. Process until smooth. This will make quite a thick dressing- you may need to add another 1/2 cup water depending on desired consistency.

Happy Saturday!
