Superpower Green Dressing

By Catriona Reynolds


This dressing truly has superpowers – it’s packed full of both deliciousness and nutrients, is quick and easy, switches seamlessly between salad dressing or pasta sauce, and it’s super charged with 50Hertz Green Sichuan Pepper Oil for some tingly pizazz. Perfect for a busy weeknight!


  • 1 handful mixed power greens (baby kale, baby chard, baby spinach) – substitute baby spinach/spinach
  • 1 handful basil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 green onions
  • 1/8 preserved lemon - substitute pulp of ¼ lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon – substitute equivalent bottle lemon juice
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup cashews
  • 1 tsp green Sichuan pepper oil, adjust to taste
  • 1/3 cup parmesan – optional use vegan version, or omit and increase cashews a bit
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. (couldn’t be easier!) Add all the ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth.


  • Coarsely chop green cabbage, toss with dressing – serve
  • Toss with hot pasta noodles for a delicious dinner or side
  • Toss with cold pasta and add chopped veggies for a colorful pasta salad
  • Use as a salad dressing - adjust viscosity with water to desired consistency

About Catriona

Catriona grew up amongst the “dark, satanic mills” of northwest England. She has always enjoyed exploring the world through flavor and, as her Mum hates to cook, she got an early start creating meals for her family.

After moving to the United States in 1990 Catriona found herself working in kitchens and as a barista. She learned to prepare food on a larger scale that way – notably as Lead Cook for a snowboard camp that offered all-you-can-eat meals to > 100 teenagers; and as a “chef” on the Anchorage-Fairbanks train leg of Princess Cruise’s Alaska offerings.

Owning a coffee shop “Catzenjammers” in Homer Alaska in the mid-90s Catriona finally had the chance to offer some of her own recipes and creations to customers. While she then diverged from cooking professionally with a jump into the nonprofit sector, Catriona continued to explore with taste and flavor. Preparing meals for others is her love language.

Homer has been home for more than half her life, and she finds that life in rural Alaska is rich and satisfying. There are many fresh, local, wild ingredients, and a robust farmer’s market. A quirky local grocery store “Save U More” has a startling variety of spices, seasonings, and ingredients. And online shopping such as for 50Hertz opens up the rest of the world…

Catriona is coowner of Cycle Logical (a bike and ski shop) with her spouse Derek. She has two grown children, and one cute as a button Grandbaby. When she’s not cooking and baking she loves to bike, ski, hike, read, sew, and play with friends.
