Dressing - Pad Thai Salad

Prep Time

5 min

Cooking Time



  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari (or coconut aminos if avoiding soy)
  • 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • 2.5 teaspoons pure maple syrup (or other sweetener)
  • 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (or other oil, like olive)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

  • Directions

    Prepare the dressing by processing all dressing ingredients in a mini processor (or simply whisk by hand). The dressing may seem a bit thin at first, but it thickens as it sits. 


    The almond butter sauce is very light – using only 1/2 tablespoon of oil – but it’s still creamy and indulgent at the same time. 

    Note: If making for a week's use at a time for lunch, like I do, double the recipe. :)
