The dressing was horribly bland, and my wife and daughters. Wouldn’t bother making this again without a significant increase in seasoning. Do appreciate that it was cauliflower-based, at least.
Oops…wife and daughters AGREED.
1 cup water should have been listed with the ingredients. Tasty sauce. I added arrowroot flour to the sauce to thicken it up. Next time I don’t think I would add almond flour at all.
I left out the nutritional yeast and substituted lemon juice for the vinegar. Tasted great!
Thank you for that! I’m not a fan of nutritional yeast so I was worried it wouldn’t enjoy it.
The list of dressing ingredients does not include the cup of water mentioned in the dressing instructions.
I cannot use almond flour bc of nut allergies. What is a good substitution?
Jodie in the comments below used arrow root and to thicken it and left out the almond flour. I’m going to do that.
It’s an ordinary veggie pasta salad… until you add the dressing! I can’t get over how delicious and addictive the dressing is — I’ve been sneaking forkfuls of salad out of the fridge because I just can’t get enough of it. I did make a few adjustments to the dressing recipe; I used regular white vinegar and a touch of apple cider vinegar as it was all I had on hand, and added just a half tablespoon of olive oil to make it a little more smooth. I also did not cook the dressing, just added to the salad raw after blending.
