Looking to make a healthy dressing that tastes great? Loaded with immune boosting properties, this dressing is filled with raw ingredients that are sure to provide you with several nutrients needed to keep you healthy all served in one bowl.Gabrielle Panepinto Reiser - Samantha Brooks - Stacey Van Gorder

I had one of those weekends where I planned to attend my son’s soccer game and then next thing you know, I am on the red carpet at the Soho International Film Festival. I spent a beautiful Saturday with my amazing friend/actress/mom/runner, Stacey Van Gorder. It was quit the change of pace from my daily routine! Samantha Brooks, Mel Brooks’s Granddaughter, did a fantastic job on her first film, Confession on Pleasant Street. I couldn’t believe she was only 16 years old when she shot the film! What a nice family! Being entertained by some interesting shorts was a perfect way to spend the day.Ginger Cilantro Dressing - runcooklaugh.com

I am back and ready to fill your mind and tummy with some healthy recipes! As some of you may know, I like to transform my recipes into “wholesome goodness” but it is not just for dessert. During my attempt to make a healthy, creamy, flavourful dressing, I added some immune boosting elements as well. Here is a list of some great ingredients and how they can help improve your overall health:

Lemons – high in vitamin C which helps strengthen the immune system.

Ginger – gingerols and shogaols are the major pungent compounds present in the rhizomes of ginger which stimulates blood circulation and opens your sinuses. A few medicinal properties of ginger include the alleviation of nausea and arthritis pain.

Onions – contain allicin which slows down and kills a variety of viruses and bacteria. Consuming onions raw will aid in the prevention of sicknesses.

Garlic – acts like a natural antibiotic and an excellent way to fight off illnesses.

Apple cider vinegar (unfiltered) – considered prebiotic which is beneficial for keeping the digestive system healthy.

Hemp – a great source of omega- 3 fatty acids that are essential for reducing inflammation.Ginger Cilantro Dressing - runcooklaugh.com

The added bonus to all these amazing ingredients is that the dressing actually tastes fantastic! The cashews make a wonderful substitute for the creamy consistency. Cilantro has a distinct taste but combined with the bold flavours of ginger, apple cider vinegar, lemon and the added sweetness of the medjool date makes an excellent combination. You have to try this dressing on your next salad!Ginger Cilantro Dressing - runcooklaugh.com
