A copycat recipe for the Chili Almond Dressing found on the Whole Foods salad bar. It’s made with creamy almond butter so it’s loaded with healthy fat and low in sugar. Oil-free, vegan, low-carb and gluten-free.


  • ½ cup natural almond butter (no sugar added)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 inch knob fresh ginger, peeled
  • 12 cloves garlic
  • 1 pitted medjool date
  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek or 1 small chili pepper
  • ⅓ cup water


  1. Blend all ingredients together in a high-speed blender. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge. Dressing will thicken as it sits so feel free to add a little liquid if needed.
