Smoky Coconut Chips & Chipotle Queso Dressing

Smoky Coconut Chips & Chipotle Queso Dressing

I was trying to decide where to put these recipes, because technically I’m not giving you a salad here;

I’m giving you an incredible dressing and smoky coconut pieces that will turn any salad into an incredibly tasty and satisfying.

For the pictures I went with these beautiful heirloom tomatoes of various colours, cut nice and chunky, along with some Romaine lettuce, coriander (cilantro) and avocado.

The chips themselves are crunchy straight from the dehydrator and need to be stored in a sealed container so they stay that way.  They’ll be good for weeks like that.  If they do happen to go soft, just pop them back in the dehydrator again.

The queso dressing is an absolute treat and has always been one of my favourite dressings.  It’ll easily keep for up to 4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
