Gingery Cilantro Dip

Posted in : Recipes on by : nommom

As summer comes to a close and we begin to pare down our kitchen to the bare essentials I find myself less inclined to cook elaborate meals and really desirous of grab-and-go type foods. Having spent much of last week ill-prepared for this I ate a lot of fruit, cold rotisserie chicken and gluten-free sandwiches from our local co-op. This week I’m planning ahead by investing in pre-cut veggies, frozen cooked shrimp, deli slices of ham and roast beef and a crap-ton of cilantro so I can make the following dip for all my cold meats.

Rob Howard

 

  • 2 small bunches cilantro (stems discarded)
  • 1/2 cup peeled and sliced ginger
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or flax oil for more omega-3s)
  • 3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil

 

Blend until well combined and smooth. Serve with shrimp at a summer gathering or use instead of mayo in sandwiches for a zingy Asian flair.
