Raw Vegan Fig Dressing

Raw Vegan Fig Dressing - perfect on green and fruit salads!

Obviously, being a raw vegan means you eat a lot of salads too, but they don't have to be boring.  I make our dressings from mainly fruits and veggies, along with a few other ingredients.  Sometimes I don't use dressing at all, but Mark does so I love creating a variety for us both.

This refreshing salad is a mix of greens, strawberries, pear, dried figs and walnuts with my thick n creamy fig dressing.  This also makes a wonderful fruit dip.

Raw Vegan Fig Dressing

1 cup dried figs
2 Tbs lemon juice
2 cups fresh water

Remove fig stems, cut in half and soak in the 2 cups fresh water for at least 60 minutes and then drain. Reserve the soak water.  In blender, add the drained figs, lemon juice and 1 cup of the soak water. Blend until smooth and creamy. If it is too thick, add more soak water until desired liking.

Store in sealed jar in fridge for up to 5 days.
