The House Dressing, Green Edition

I get many calls for this salad dressing. Before I bought into the precious nature of balancing single estate olive oil and artisanal vinegar in just the right proportions, I ate this and happily. It's got a million uses from salad, to grilled veggies, to steak marinade. My mom called it the house dressing. This version is green. It's got a match in red. And we've always whipped it together in a blender or food processor (hello, Ninja!)

Probably for the first time ever, I tried to measure out ingredients, but adapt to your own taste.

Ingredients

1 big clove garlic

Small handful parsley leaves (less stem)

Small handful dill (less stem)

BLITZ BLENDER

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2-3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

Several grates pepper

BLITZ BLENDER

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons veg or neutral flavor oil

BLITZ AGAIN – Adjust seasonings, oil & vinegar

Note: most recently I used this dressing with a minimal amount of mayo in chicken salad – a winner!

Second note: it keeps really well if fridge. Big batch it!
