How to Make a Raw, Dairy-Free, Dill Cheese Dressing

I've long maintained that pasteurized and homogenized dairy products should be avoided whenever possible, as regular intake of cooked casein in dairy is associated with a number of health challenges, the most common of which are chronic ear infections, nasal congestion, acne, eczema, a variety of autoimmune illnesses, and even cancer.

I almost never eat dairy products, but like a lot of people who follow a dairy-free diet, I find myself craving different types of cheese from time to time. If you're like me and long for the texture and flavor of cheese on occasion, I hope that you give the following recipe for raw, dairy-free dill cheese a try. In the proportions listed, this recipe comes out as more of a cheese dressing; if you prefer it thicker and richer, start with less water when you blend and adjust if necessary by adding small amounts of water.

This dill cheese dressing is rich in healthy protein, and its abundance of natural vitamin E and selenium make it highly capable of neutralizing free radicals throughout your body, so including this cheese dressing in your diet will lower your risk of all types of degenerative disease.
