- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (brand such as Red Star)
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup tamari (soy sauce)
- 1/3 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp crushed garlic (or if using a blender 1-2 whole cloves when mixing ingredients together)
- 1 1/2 cup canola or other light vegetable oil (avoid olive oil as the flavour is too strong).
This makes a large quantity but gets used up quickly.
Put in a squirt bottle the babies can do it themselves; and anything that they can do "me do" themselves is usually a hit. The dressing is a new family favourite as it can be used on salads, dip for plain raw veggies and a sauce on soba noodles or rice.
One last thing- I have a new favourite tool called a Y peeler- it makes pretty transparently thin ribbons of most vegetables. To paraphrase Jamie Oliver "never a dull salad again".
