Lactose-Free Creamy Beet Salad Dressing Recipe

Vegetables are no longer relegated to being a mundane side dish in a meal, but rather have become strong solo statements in a meal by their own merit. Beets are no exception, with an earthy sweet flavor that sings on its own. Using this taste to create a thick and creamy dressing without cream is a new twist on an old root.
