Walnut Grapefruit Dressing Recipe

2 Servings – 5 minutes

Once I started making nut butters, I came up with all kinds of sauces.  This was another of those famous recipes of “What’s-in-the-frig?”  I tasted it, tweaked it and served over cabbage rolls.  Now I use it for everything.  Dilute with water at different ratios for a thinner dressing or a thick sauce..


¼ C walnut or other nut butter
¼ C grapefruit Juice
1 Tbsp white miso
1 tsp agave nectar
1 tsp tarragon
1/8 C hot water


  1. Place all ingredients in small bowl.  Blend with immersion blender until creamy.

Note: You can make your own nut butter in a strong blender or food processor.  Put in raw nuts.  Turn on food processor.  Walk away.  Come back in 5 minutes. Walnut is used here for the omega-3 fats.

Abbreviations: C = cup; oz = ounce; Tbsp = tablespoon; tsp = teaspoon
