Recipe Notes

  • You can use a mini-prep food processor, NutriBullet blender, or a Vitamix with similar results.
  • Each serving is roughly 2 tablespoons of salad dressing.
  • To Store: Seal in an airtight container like these cute glass mason jars in the refrigerator. If only oil, vinegar, and honey or maple syrup are used it will last for 3-4 months. If perishables are added keep for up to 2-4 weeks.
