Creamy Sun-Dried and Fire-Roasted Tomato Basil Dressing

Leave a comment

This stuff is super easy and dang tasty! Plus it makes use of herbs that grow lush in the summer. Basil is loaded with anti-oxidants, (and is ranked number 11 on the ORAC list of antioxidant capacity!) and the cooked tomatoes provide lots of lycopene – great for the eyes and for preventing various types of cancer. The raw garlic is an anti-inflammatory and as an added bonus, the kefir has lots of beneficial bacteria that  keep your belly happy and your digestive system moving! Put this on a salad for a bunch of healthy goodness! Happy Health!

 * My culinary posts are meant to be guidelines, not recipes. They are different from what you would usually find in a cookbook, because I think cooking should be inspired and new every time you do it. If you like heat, add a sh**load of cayenne or jalapenos to one of my recipes. If my guideline calls for cilantro but cilantro tastes like soap to you, leave it out. When I cook, I get a buzz from the thrill of creation. The same can happen to you.
