Recipe Notes

There is so much flavor in this salad that I don't recommend using a lot of dressing. You want just a hint of the dressing and not to be overwhelming. You want the dressing just to coat the salad, not overpower it. If you do prefer more dressing you may want to double the recipe or make a second batch if you wanted a little more. I've made this dressing many times and the consistency is usually good. I have noticed if you use a thicker almond butter the dressing but be thicker after you mix it together. To thin it out use add a little water to thin it out to your desired consistency.
