Cucumber Dressing


Salad dressings are something we’re asked about a lot. It really is a challenge to find ones free of vegetable oils and soy.

There is one store-bought brand I highly recommend, and which I keep on hand in those times of emergency where home-made dressings aren’t a viable option. That brand is Tessemae’s and their dressings are free of all those naughty ingredients that other brands like to sneak in.

That said, when time is available, there is something lovely about making dressing from scratch. I particularly love my Citrus Salad Dressing for summer salads, and this Cucumber Dressing works wonders to liven up a fish dish in the winter.

Plus, cucumber is actually incredibly healthy.

Despite popular belief that it consists of nothing but water, cucumbers contain numerous nutrients, including a number of B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese and potassium. To learn more about the health benefits of cucumbers, Dr. Mercola has an excellent article titled, 9 Health Benefits of Cucumbers.


1 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon honey/raw agave nectar
1 teaspoon olive oil


Simply place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth.
Serve over salad, fish or grilled chicken.

Honey Mustard Dressing

Property of

A couple of weeks ago we posted a recipe for roasted beets, if you combine this delicious dressing with some greens and beets you’ll have a fantastic light salad. With this dressing we’ve changed things up a little. This isn’t your traditional honey mustard dressing, this has a bit of a smoky flavor to it. Don’t worry though, similar to all our recipes this is easy to make.


1/2 shallot, diced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon honey


In a bowl combine all ingredients.
Whisk until mixture becomes cloudy instead of clear.
Keep refrigerated.

We promise, it’s that simple. Here’s to making a healthy, paleo dressing that is great for all salads.
