Green Garlic Dressing
« on: April 14, 2007, 10:42:58 PM »
Here is one of my favorite dressing recipes from Dr. Weil's "Eating Well for Optimum Health" book as follows:

  1/2 C (4 oz.) silken tofu
  2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
  1 clove garlic (Generally I put 2 or 3 or more)
  1/4 C (packed) fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves or parsley leaves
  salt and black and red pepper to taste

  Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.

  Use on salads, vegetables, or fish.
