pink pepper hemp dressing

hello friends,

you have seen us do quite a few different salad dressings before here on the blog. what can we say we just love to think of something new each time we make a salad.

you have seen us make broccoli dressing and some kraut based dressings. you know we love our kraut.

today’s salad dressing was inspired by our simple 3 ingredient pink dressingguess we like pink

again like most of our salad dressing we try to keep them simple, plus having them be raw, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

Pink Pepper Hemp Dressing

time: 5

equipment: food processor or blender

serves: 2


  • 1/3 cup fermented veggies (or sauerkraut would work)
  • 20 leaves fresh basil (about 1/4-1/3 cup)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 6 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 yellow pepper (you can use any color pepper)


Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and puree till combined.

**note: our salad dressing is pink due from us using beets and carrots as our fermented veggies; if you use other veggies (especially no beets) it might not be a pink color in the end

Best way we enjoyed this pink pepper hemp seed dressing was on a large salad of course filled with veggies.

This dressing is super easy to make and can be flavored any way you like it. Maybe add in some cayenne? Or parsley? Cumin? oh the possibilities are endless

Lori and I love making super easy and simple salad dressings for our dinner salads. We loved the slight hint of basil coming through this dressing along with the flavor of the yellow pepper shining through. YUM

Twins Question: Have you made fermented veggies before? If no, what why not? (promise they are super easy to make and great way to get probiotics)

Do you like the color pink? What is your favorite color?

Till next time,

    I LOVE pink! :) this looks good – I will be trying it!

    at vida vegan this weekend (we ate AMAZING food!), there was a fantastic purple cauliflower hummus that was this color – reminded me of it. :)

    Love the color of the salad dressing, so vibrant!! I haven’t tried making fermented veggies yet… I keep meaning to, but for some reason I keep putting it off. maybe next weekend! for that matter, I haven’t tried hemp seeds either and I’m dying to try them! I see them at my local health food store but they’re SO expensive. I may have to try both soon though because that dressing looks delish ;)

    That looks so tasty! I love that the entire recipe is made from whole foods. I need to jump on the homemade fermented veggie wagon for sure. I always buy Bubbie’s brand since it is unpasteurized, but it would definitely be cheaper to make my own. And I could ferment all sorts of exciting vegetables!
