Yields approximately 1 cup dressing
This dressing may thicken after sitting in the fridge for a few days. Add a little water to thin it out before serving. It will last for a week in fridge.
You can serve this dressing with salads, roasted vegetables, or even as a chicken/meat dipping sauce. I especially like it with a baby lettuce mix, micro arugula, avocado chunks, and purple onion, topped with roasted slivered almonds (of course). The sweetish dressing offsets the bitterness of the baby lettuce and arugula well. Another delicious combo is lettuce, thin apple slices, and small cubes of goat or feta cheese, topped with walnut pieces.
Almond butter has a whopping 347 milligrams calcium per 100 grams. It has many health benefits, but this is the most notable bone-health benefit. In addition, the fats found in almonds are the same type as those found in olive oil, which actually promote calcium absorption.
