Summer on a plate. Merely because of the bright colours and zingy fresh flavours.
I love making use of nut and seed butters for wholesome satisfying dressing and sauces and this is one of my current favourites. I’m actually just on an all round almond butter kick at the moment.
I created this one for Lifeforce; they truly have the best almond butter. The texture is thick, yet drippy, easy to spread and drizzle, equally ideal for spooning straight from the jar.
If you’re in need of an extra spritz of summer, or are just bored of your usual salad and want some delicious veggie goodness in your life, whip this one up. If the weather plays ball it’s the perfect addition to any barbecue spread.
