Oil Free No Oil Beet Hummus Dressing Dr Fuhrman Eat to Live 6 week plan recipe oil free salad dressing recipeReady to beautify your salad?

Beautifully simple to make, beautiful flavors, come on now–just look at that color!

Yup, you need this salad dressing in your life.  Even if you think you don’t like beets, this is the perfect place to start.

Brace yourself for the awesomeness of beets…

A cup full of beets packs a serious nutritional punch!  They are a great source of:

  • folate
  • manganese
  • potassium
  • copper
  • magnesium
  • iron
  • vitamin B6

Ever wonder what gives beets that amazing magenta hue? 

They’re called betalin pigments and they are kind of amazing! 

These pigments support your body’s Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. 

So, drizzling this dressing over your salad not only makes that salad instantly tastier and gorgeous (which makes you instantly smile) but it’s actually going to help clean out your body and give you extra nutrients?

Okay, let’s do this!

I’m going to show you how to make this dressing two ways…

Beet Hummus Dressing Recipe Dr Fuhrman Nutritarian no oil salad dressing recipe 6 week program clean eating veganFirst, the easy way…

You just go out to the store and grab a container of ready-made beet hummus!  Might I recommend Trader Joe’s brand–because it’s low in oil and sodium!  I’ve also seen it at Sprouts and Whole Foods.

Best part?  You don’t have to bust out your high-speed blender!  You can go old-school with your just your whisk and your will (heck, even a fork will suffice).

But what if you’re on Dr. Fuhrman’s 6 week plan and need to avoid oil altogether?

I’ve got you covered!

Make a batch of this No-Oil Beet Hummus recipe to use as the base for this dressing!

Either way you go, you’re going to love this bright, slightly sweet dressing.

Soon you’ll be drizzling it on everything!  Might I suggest black beans, fresh avocado, and baked sweet potatoes, to start.

    What ingredients are in your hummus if you make it yourself?
    I normally put rinsed garbanzos, tahini, plain yogurt, fresh lemon juice, optional roasted red pepper, garlic, salt, with olive oil on top when served.
    I know you’d skip the olive oil (& maybe yogurt?). It sounds like you might just mix mine with cooked beets & water to thin it, since the other ingredients are already in it. Thanks.

    Hi. I just started today your 7 day salad cleanse and all 3 meals were delicious. I would like to have a copy of your recipes but do not have a printer. Is there some way that you could send me a print copy of your recipes?
    I am computer challenged and sometimes am not able to get back to the original page that sent me to look up dressing recipes, etc.
    Any help your could give me would be appreciated.

    • Kristen Hong says:
