Taste of Tuesday

Here's a salad dressing that is simple and delicious.  And gentle on the earth because when you make your own dressing, you avoid extra packaging.  Plus you get the benefit of knowing exactly what's in it - no mysterious, unpronounceable ingredients.

Zucchini Dressing

1/2 cup safflower oil
1 medium-sized zucchini, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons tamari
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed for one minute.  Chill before serving to allow flavors to mingle.

You might want to be careful with the onion as it can be overpowering if you add too much.

Bon appetit!
