Recipe: Citrus Summer Berry Dressing

What you will need for this recipe:

1-2 cups 250-500ml of your favorite berry I would recommend a tart berry like the Raspberry, Blueberry or Blackberry.
1 Coconut this will be your fat aspect and the water can be used to thin the dressing if necessary.
2-3 Tblspns 30-45ml or Apple Cider Vinegar recommend Braggs
1 lime
1 bunch of Mint 125ml or one of those small containers works
Sea Salt to your taste maybe 10ml or 2 teaspoons
Black pepper fresh cracked same as salt
Cayenne Pepper for Real Heat (optional)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (optional)
1 Tblspn Honey for a little sweetness(optional)

Rinse the berries and place in blender, cut the coconut top off drain the water into a bowl or pitcher and remove the meat add to blender, add the remaining ingredients and blend the mixture until it is nice and smooth if too thick to blend thin with some of the coconut water MMM.  You can always run the dressing through a mesh basket to remove a lot of the seeds or get rid of some of the leftover chunks.  Mint is awesome when added to berries it just makes them POP.
I have used this dressing many times and is always a winner enjoy.  If you cannot find fresh coconut you could always buy a can of coconut milk kind of against the processed food aspect but the coconut really makes this yummy.  If you do not like the taste of coconut or simply do not want the added fats omit it the dressing works fine without this aspect I would recommend adding the olive oil in its place still a very healthy fat.

God Bless and Peace be with you.
