A special recipe I learned from my time working at Verbena Restaurant in San Francisco, but with a twist! I make this all of the time when we have guests – it’s always a hit. Creamy, high protein, flavorful and healthy! 

Pumpkin seeds are natural parasite-fighters, and are packed with protein. Keep that gut healthy by incorporating them into your diet on a weekly basis! 

High Protein Pumpkin Seed Salad Dressing

Dressing ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 ½ cups boiled water, plus more if needed
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ shallot, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup chopped herbs of choice, such as:
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
    5 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

    Pulse everything well in a blender or food processor. Taste and adjust to taste. Keep fresh in the refrigerator, and then toss on a simple salad when you’re ready to eat!
