What to do when a recipe calls for 2 Tbsp of a fresh herb but you have to buy the entire bunch? Make a salad dressing with it of course! I’ve made my own salad dressings for a long time because I prefer to use flax oil but it wasn’t until I received my hand blender off of my registry that I really understood the ease and goodness of homemade salad dressings. We are talking 5 minutes, literally, for a dressing that has no added preservatives and lasts a long time!
Average time: 5 minutes
Yields: 8 oz
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped
1 cup flax oil
1 tsp crushed garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth.
