Creamy Citrus Dressing

Florida organic strawberries have arrived at the markets and I am thrilled!!! It's a bonus that they just happened to be on sale the day I discovered them stocked at our local grocery store. Each year we patiently wait for berry season because everyone in this house loves them. And this batch was nothing short of spectacular and definitely worth the wait--deep red, juicy, and sweet!!! I knew I had to make them the centerpiece of my salad. 

I really love combining organic baby spinach and organic celery with strawberries. That was base to this wonderful salad. Garnished with sweet onion slices and a Creamy Citrus Dressing and you have one amazingly delicious salad. 
Let's talk about the creamy dressing I made. It couldn't be easier--3 simple ingredients.
Hulled hemp seeds lend the irresistible creaminess, deglet dates add a touch of sweetness, and fresh orange juice adds the citrus notes. 

CREAMY CITRUS DRESSING

2 tablespoons hulled hemp seeds
2 deglet dates, remove pits
Blend until creamy in a high speed blender adding more orange juice as needed, to thin to desired consistency.
