This is a base recipe that you can make up different each time with a variety of herbs. Have to admit though that I almost never put any herbs in the dressing. I love the fresh vegetables as they are with the simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing. If I want herbs I prefer fresh herbs in my salad. What makes this light is the addition of water which also makes it more alkalizing. Ingredients:
1 cup cold pressed olive oil 1/3 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup water 1/4 – 1 tsp. salt Few drops of liquid Stevia
1 – 3 tsp. basil 1/2 – 1 tsp. marjoram 1/4 tsp. rosemary or 2 tbsp. fresh mint (or 2 tsp. dried) for a mint dressing
Put all ingredients into a blender; blend till smooth.
Put in a jar with a lid and refrigerate till using.
