Citrus Hemp Dressing

by jenny sansouci on March 27, 2012

At the risk of sounding dramatic, I just have to say….this may be the best salad dressing I’ve ever tasted. I’m so glad it came into my life and I know you’ll feel the same.

The other night I was out to dinner at Caravan of Dreams in Manhattan’s East Village. I got what I usually get there – the Omega Salad with “citrus hemp dressing.” All I know is that the salad is mouth-wateringly delicious. I wanted to re-create the entire salad, but I knew the important part was to master the dressing.

The words “citrus” and “hemp” were all I had to go by when creating this dressing. I winged it. It came out creamy and AMAZING.

This dressing is vegan and raw.


  • Juice from 1 orange
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 clove of garlic
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • sprinkle of sea salt

Blend all ingredients together in your blender.

Pour over a salad! My recommendation? Mixed organic greens and sliced avocado. PERFECTION IN A BOWL!


My apologies in advance if you have an epic freak out session after trying this dressing.

Gosh it looks heavenly. I am absolutely willing to risk an epic freak out session and try this one!

I’d like to try it with hemp seeds at some point, but in the mean time, do you think substituting them with sunflower seeds would work? I’ve heard they taste similar and sunflower seeds are much easier on my wallet.

Definitely! Let me know if you do!

I’m making this later this week after I get through the rest of the tahini lime salad dressing (also yummy) that I made earlier this week. I thought I’d mention something I’ve started doing to amp up the creaminess in my salads. I actually massage the avocado into the greens as much as possible, so all the leaves are coated in creamy avocado. It makes it so much more amazing, and with the dressing, it reminded me of Caesar salad, only vegan and so much lighter tasting and delicious.

Can’t wait to make this…tonight! Do you know how long it would keep in the fridge if I made a bottle’s worth?

I kept mine in the fridge for 2-3 days, but I’m not sure after that!

This dressing sounds so good. Love your passion.

do you think you could substitute the hemp seeds and olive oil for hemp oil? And if so, how much should I use?


jenny sansouci January 16, 2013 at 3:58 pm

Sure – I’m not sure about the amounts as I’ve never tried it, so I recommend experimenting. 🙂
