“Go ahead now, go ahead, get down!” in the words of Kanye West, I believe. That’s what I feel like singin, cause I had “a first”: one of my recipes was posted on another blog! Woot! Now, if you read my blog, you know I don’t actually create many recipes myself. I usually find one that another blogger created and give you guys the link! (why re-create the wheel??!!) But for my Chia Seed Dressing recipe, I actually created it all by my self from scratch, without any help from a “real” recipe creator, or my mama! Sometimes I amaze myself, it’s true. And all this on the one year anniversary of the Organic Eater blog, hurray! Happy 1st Birthday, bloggy! More on that later.
And so, this recipe was reposted in a B-utiful post at Rate Your Burn, which has 14 gorgeous chia seed recipes in the post. It’s really weird to see your own photograph on somene else’s blog. It looks sooo much prettier there. wow. Check it out!
As a follow up to my Mexican Food Fan post, here is a salad dressing for you! This has to be tthe easiest Mexican salad dressing ever in the history of Mexico!:) Here are the TWO things you need to make this “couldn’t be easier” home made dressing!
Yes, seriously. That’s it. Of course, home-made plain yogurt (Google it, cause I’m not there yet) and home-made salsa are best, but if you don’t have time for that, use an organic (or natural, no chemicals/hormones added) store-bought version of each of these. I do half and half to make my dressing, but use the ratio you prefer. You could use sour cream if you don’t have plain yogurt.
Since we’re all trying to eat more vegetables (aka “salads”), this is one more way to give you some variety in the salads area (and encourage you to keep eating greens!). We like our Mexican Salad (sans shell) with seasoned grass-fed beef, raw milk white cheddar, plenty of veg including fresh cilantro, and this dressing. If you must have the shell, use organic corn chips or break an organic taco shell instead. The chips are smaller, and likely fewer ingredients than the giant taco salad shells I’ve seen. Let me know if you try this with other ingredients too. Ole!
