Since we all eat a lot of salad, I thought it might be helpful to have a whole thread dedicated to salad dressings. This way we can easily find a new dressing. :) Who wants to go first? :p

This is the one we've been working on this week.
1 1/2 c. raw cashews (soak if not using High power blender)
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 c. water
1 TB Honey (or agave)
1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
Blend these ingredients on High until smooth, then add:
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
Blend gently until incorporated. Refrigerate (this is best if it sits a couple hours or over night, but good right away). And I'm sure you could substitute some fresh herbs for the dried ones.

I also prefer simplycity - olive oil and lemon juice, nice and easy. If you are really interested in salad dressings, I would suggest checking out Frederic Patenaude's "70 Healthy Salad Dressings" ebook (http://www.fredericpatenaude.com/HealthySaladDressings.html), I tried at least a dozen recipes and they all came out delicious.

I like to pour some Hemp seed oil onto my salad as a dressing and sometimes I crush some fresh garlic into the oil. My favorite salad to use the Hemp oil on is baby spinach. Simple and easy.
