This is a recipe that will make your taste buds ... and your a happy dance. Creamy Kimchi Salad Dressing is a flavor explosion that you'll want to drizzle on everything.

Why Make this Recipe?

 Now, you might be wondering, "Why should I bother making my own dressing when I can just grab a bottle from the store?" Well, hold onto your salad tongs. We think that once you go fresh, you never go back.

First off, homemade dressings are culinary magic. They're fresher, tastier, and you have complete control over what ingredients are used.

Plus, with our Creamy Probiotic Kimchi Salad Dressing, you're not just adding flavor to your salads. You're also giving your gut some love with those probiotic-packed ingredients like kimchi and miso paste. It's a party in your mouth and your belly's invited!

Is this recipe easy?

This recipe is so simple, you'll put it on heavy rotation. Just toss all the ingredients into a blender, give it a whirl, and voila – creamy, dreamy goodness in a matter of minutes.

This dressing (or dip!) is hassle-free, foolproof, and guaranteed to impress your taste testers.

Another easy tip: make a double batch. Use one and save the other in the freezer!

What Equipment do you need?

Good news: you don't need a fancy kitchen arsenal to conquer this recipe. All you'll need is a trusty blender to blitz everything together until smooth and creamy.

We like storing the dressing in a ball jar or other glass container that we're reusing.

Why use JOI plant milk concentrate for this recipe?

JOI plant milk concentrate is the secret weapon in our culinary arsenal! The almond, cashew, or hemp concentrates add a rich, creamy texture to our dressing that'll have you licking the bowl clean. And all without the dairy!

Plus, keeping JOI on your pantry shelf is super convenient. With JOI, you can whip up creamy concoctions whenever the mood strikes! Creamy dressings, dips, sauces, soups and smoothies are just a scoop of JOI away.

What Substitutions can you make in this recipe?

Feeling adventurous? Play around with the ingredients to suit your taste buds. Or whatever ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

Don't have pomegranate molasses on hand? No problem – just swap in some balsamic vinegar and honey for that sweet-tangy flavor.

If you're not a fan of kimchi, try experimenting with other fermented veggies or sauerkraut.

We love the toasty taste of sesame oil, but if you don't have any in your pantry, substitute olive oil or avocado oil instead.

Perhaps you prefer a more funky flavor. We won't discourage adding a splash of fish sauce.

Need some protein? Just blend a chunk of silk tofu into the dressing.

When to serve this recipe?

Honestly, when *can't* you serve this recipe? It's perfect for jazzing up your everyday salads, but don't stop there!

Drizzle it over roasted veggies and use it as a dip for crudites, chips or crispy tofu.

This recipe is great as a sauce to top a rice or noodle bowl as well.

Or just grab a spoon and eat it straight from the jar (we won't judge).

Whether you're hosting a fancy dinner party or just treating yourself, this dressing is sure to steal the show.

Why this recipe is probiotic

Now, let's discuss the real MVPs of this probiotic dressing – kimchi and miso paste. These fermented wonders are chock-full of probiotics, aka the good bacteria that keep your gut happy and healthy.

Not only do they add a punch of flavor to our dressing, but they also work their magic on your digestive system, promoting better digestion and overall gut health.

So go ahead, slather on that creamy kimchi goodness (and drink the remants of your kimchi juice) – your belly will thank you later!

Hint: want to feed the probiotic bugs you're pouring over your salad? Incorporate some prebiotic rich foods into your salad, like chia seeds, asparagus and dandelion greens. We're making "probiotic salads" a thing.

Here's the Recipe

We think our Creamy Kimchi Salad Dressing is a game-changer in the world of salad dressings. It's easy, it's flavorful, and it's packed with gut-loving goodness that'll have you coming back for seconds (and thirds).

So grab your blender, throw some salad ingredients into a large bowl and get ready to jump into this recipe.
