The Best Salad Dressing Ever!!!!

Here is a recipe worth trying! I haven't made it yet, but I had it at our Seay Family Christmas last year, and my sister-in-law, Lisa, made it. (Married to Chris.) We all stopped and worshiped Jesus when we ate this. This is what Christmas family gatherings should consist of! Anyway, I immediately wanted the recipe, but didn't get it until today. This dressing has been on my mind all year. I'm not kidding. I know I have problems, but it's just so stinkin' good! So here's the recipe. It's super healthy, from the Vegan side of the family.
Just so you know, it's green, and that makes it even more fun. I wish I had a visual aid of it to show.
Try it, and thank me later you guys! I can't wait to make it myself.

Creamy Italian Dressing
3/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. raw apple cider vinegar
2 or 3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 t. sea salt
1/2 c. fresh basil
1/4 c. fresh oregano
1/3 c. pure water
1/3 c. pine nuts
In a high speed blender, combine all of the
ingredients and blend until smooth. Remove any foam
that rises to the top. For a lighter version, omit
the water and pine nuts.
Lisa said you can give it a Mexican flair if you want to substitute the basil for cilantro and lime juice for lemon juice. That sounds good too!

Mmmmmmm! This is delicious! Thanks so much for sharing it. I didn't have fresh basil or oregano on hand and used dried...it was still wonderful! I can't imagine how much better it will be when our garden is bountiful.
