Oil-Free Cilantro Lime "Dresto" for Everything

I'm always on the lookout for oil-free dressings and pesto for dishes and salads and when I heard one of our members of the Plant-Empowered Woman Facebook Group had created a new one that is slurp-i-licious and completely fat-free and oil-free (no nuts!), I couldn't wait to try it. So I invited Rosana over to make it with me in a first-of-it's kind "In My Kitchen" series livestream in our free group.

Here's that video in case you missed it!

Not only did she show us how to make this amazing "Dresto" (half dressing/half pesto), but we also discussed and showed some great ways to serve it. Even more than that, Rosana shared her vegan health success story reversing high cholesterol and being pre-diabetic and inspired everyone participating.
