And that is coming from someone who has never really been one for dips and dressings!

Well that’s not entirely true, I did go through a massive french onion dip phase in my teenage years  . . . but apart from that – dips and dressings have never really taken my fancy.

Unless of course we’re talking about guacamole. Avocados = life!

But, a few weeks ago I was making dinner – the

chicken souvlaki kebabs from The Practical Paleo Second Edition Book – and I got this unshakeable urge to make some creamy, Greek style dressing/dipping sauce to go with.

So I opened the fridge and randomly threw together a sauce that turned out to be so incredible delicious that it totally blew my mind!

Since then, there has been no turning back!

This dressing is everything!

I seriously can’t stop!

It’s great on salads, it’s great on burgers, it would be amazing drizzled over some roasted pumpkin or crispy taters too but it’s also great simply slathered onto some fresh cut veggies carrots are my fave but cucumber, broccoli, capsicum/peppers are all good to – you name it, it just works!

Seriously, so good!

And you know what makes it even better?!

Creamy, 2 minute Garlic and Dill Dressing {Vegan, Gluten Free & Paleo Friendly}

Makes approx 1 cup of all natural, quick and easy, creamy, dreamy, 2 minute garlic and dill dressing

Ingredients –

1 cup coconut milk cream*  (I use 2 cans of coconut milk) – could sub coconut or Greek style yogurt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried dill

1 teaspoon of freshly squeeze lemon juice (approx 1/3 of a medium sized lemon)

1 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper

Method –

* If doing to coconut milk option the night before you want to make your dressing you will need to open your cans of coconut milk and place them, uncovered in the fridge overnight.

Overnight the cream will separate and solidify at the top of the can leaving the luscious coconut water at the bottom making it easier for you to scoop out the creamy, dreamy deliciousness.

Keep the coconut water (or freeze in an ice cube tray) to use in smoothies or just drink it as is – yum.

1 – Place all ingredients into a small bowl and stir until well combined.

2 – Taste and adjust seasonings to taste. Also, if you prefer a thinner consistency add a touch of coconut or almond milk (or milk of choice) a teaspoon at a time to reach desired consistency.

3 – Drizzle over your favorite salad, roasted veg, carrot and zucchini fritters or use it to simply dip fresh cut veggie sticks for a seriously flavorful snack.

4 – Store in an air-tight container in the fridge and should keep well for up to 7 days but I doubt it will last that long, mine never does 😉

Enjoy xo
