Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Vegan mayo like Vegenaise
  • 1/2 an english cucumber or whatever kind you have on hand
  • 6-8 capers – these are strange pickled flower buds… you can find them by the tomato paste and the pickled veggies usually… I don’t know… ask someone at the grocery store.
  • 1/4 cup of fresh herbs – I like dill, oregano, basil  or thyme. If you are feeling adventurous, but still want to keep it PG, mix them together!
  • 2 tbsp of pickle juice AND/OR Lemon Juice … this is the secret weapon right here. I like both but some people are weird about pickles…Both makes the dressing thinner but tastier. 
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic – more if your spouse is on a business trip
  • 3 tbsp of Nooch – If you are new to the Vegan world – this is magic called Nutritional Yeast, you can find it pretty much anywhere now-a-days.
  • Salt & pepper to taste

What to do:

  1. Shred the cucumber, now put it in cheesecloth or a cloth and squeeze most of the liquid out.
  2. Put this all in a high powered blender or food processor and let it turn verrrryyy creamy
  3. Pour it into a lovely ramekin and serve with chips, veggies or in a salad, taco etc. This dip goes with any food and outfit.

Usually keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.
