Our summer CSA has been full of greens for salads, which means I was in the market for a new dressing to spice things up a bit. This dressing is tangy and using the Vitamix makes it smooth and creamy without adding any dairy. I adapted this vinaigrette from a recipe for pasta salad, but it pairs well with a classic summer salad topped with fish, chicken, or just veggies.
1/4 cup of Avocado oil or another vegetable oil
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
1 Tbsp of chopped dill
1 clove of garlic
dash of salt and pepper to taste
1. Add everything to the Vitamix and blend increasing to high until smooth and creamy.
I used fresh parsley and dill, however I am looking forward to trying out other herbs to change the flavor profile: basil, thyme, cilantro, oregano, chives or whatever you are growing in abundance.
Enjoy and Eat Well!
