So I am pretty much a low fat raw foodist, but when it comes to salads, I just won't eat them without some kind of oil. Also I had some umeboshi plum paste that is rarely used in recipes unless you create your own so I did. The paste itself, for those of you who have never used it, is very flavorful. It's salty so you don't need much at all, and tart, it adds ZING. This dressing was enough to dress 1 salad so i eyeballed the ingredients like i always would put oil on my salad so im sorry i dont have exactness but it was a pretty big salad! I looked up the health benefits of Ume plums if anyone is interested here a website:
I love having sushi in the "raw". My favorite is futo maki and this is a rendition of the original futo maki that is made with pickled radish, egg or tamago, veggie and rice. At the same time, I wanted to use the fresh peas preshelled from the farmers market. I combined it with the golden zucchini then a touch of Hemp Ginger dressing.
Rich and creamy! It wonderful choice, if time to time you are still having cravings for Parmesan or Gruyere cheese.
