Pine Nut Dressing
from Allergy Cooking With Ease by Nicolette M. Dumke
This dressing may be used in many of the foods where you would use mayonnaise. If you make it without the stevia, it is an excellent dip for artichokes.
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp tart tasting unbuffered Vitamin C crystals, such as Vital Life Brand 1/16 tsp or a 'dash' of sea salt Dash of pepper (optional) 1 or 2 drops liquid stevia (or use the stevia "working solution" as described in the above book) Stevia is optional - use it if you want a sweet dressing
Grind the nuts to a fine powder in a blender or food processor. Add the water and blend the mixture until it is smooth. Add the oil in the slowest stream possible while the blender or processor is running. Add the seasonings and blend briefly. If this dressing loses its tartness after being refrigerated for awhile, mix 1/2 to 1 tsp Vitamin C crystals with 1/2 to 1 tsp of water and stir it into the dressing. Makes 3/4 cups dressing.
