Wild Green Tarragon and Cilantro Pine Nut Dressing

Have you heard the good news? We've added yet another single ingredient stone ground raw nut butter to our Dastony line up - and it is a must try.

Unimaginably creamy, delicious, and nutrient-rich, our Wild Pine Nut Butter from Dastony is here! We source our pine nuts directly from the wild pine forests of Siberia where they are sustainably harvested and grown without any herbicides or pesticides (a wild food!). A true superfood, pine nuts offer a wealth of nutritional goodness such as heart-healthy fats, free radical squelching antioxidants, and plant based protein. They are also a valuable source of vitamins such as Vitamin K, niacin, thiamin, and vitamin E, and trace minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc.

We stone grind this silky-smooth, creamy-sweet wild nut butter in small batches at low temperatures to retain its nutritional properties, nourishing fats, plant based protein, and incredible flavor profile. The texture is unreal - it literally melts in the mouth. Perfect for making sauces and dressings!

The unique flavor of this luxurious butter can go either way - sweet or savory. Pine nuts are absolutely delicious in pesto recipes, their creamy and mildly sweet nature perfectly complimenting the bitterness of fresh herbs. We decided to whip up a dressing with a similar theme, but instead of basil, focused on the flavors of tarragon, cilantro, and lemon. This is a delicious, creamy dressing bursting with nutrition and flavor, and it couldn't be more easy to make. Drizzle it over a salad, pour it on your next bowl, or use it as a dip for collard wraps or rice paper rolls.
