Coconut Cream: Coconut cream is a thick, rich cream that is made from the white flesh of mature coconuts. It is similar to heavy cream in consistency, but it has a unique coconut flavor. Coconut cream is a popular ingredient in many Asian and Caribbean cuisines and it is also becoming increasingly popular in Western cuisine. It is a good source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are a type of fat that your body can easily digest and convert into energy. Coconut cream is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, and vitamins C and E. I use the mini can of coconut cream which is 5.4 oz, but you can also scoop the coconut cream out of a can of coconut milk. The coconut cream in this recipe needs to be refrigerated overnight prior to making this recipe.
Lemon: Lemon juice adds a bright and refreshing flavor to this salad dressing. It also helps to balance out the richness of other ingredients. In addition to its flavor and texture benefits, lemon juice is also a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage. Fresh lemon juice is always my preference!
Dill: Dill is a flavorful herb that can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads to soups to stews. It is also a good source of nutrients, including vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Dill is known to help with digestion by stimulating the production of digestive enzymes. It can also help to relieve gas and bloating. It is also a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect cells from damage and an anti-inflammatory. I prefer to use fresh dill here, but you can also use dried if that is what you have on hand!
Green Onions: Green onions, also known as scallions or spring onions, are a nutrient-rich vegetable that has a variety of health benefits. They are a good source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. Green onions are also low in calories and fat. I picked these green onions straight from my Lettuce Grow, which is a hydroponic farmstand. I am absolutely obsessed with it because I live in a city and I am able to grow fresh vegetables on my balcony! If you want to try one, LESSWITHLAUR gets you a discount.
Basil: Basil is a popular herb that is used in a variety of cuisines around the world. It has a strong, aromatic flavor that can be used to enhance the taste of many dishes. Basil is also a good source of nutrients and has a number of health benefits. I also picked this basil from my Lettuce Grow!
Onion Powder: Onion powder adds flavor to this low histamine ranch dressing! Onion powder is a convenient and versatile ingredient that can be used to add flavor to a variety of dishes. It is also a good source of nutrients and has a number of health benefits. It is always great to have on hand!
