Creamy Parsley Salad Dressing

I love a good salad.  Especially one with a really good dressing!

I am going to share with you an awesome salad dressing recipe that my grandpa gave me (he is pretty ingenious when it comes to dressings).

The best part of this dressing is that it can be vegan (I'll label the changes in purplish pink)!

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic - minced (or just make sure it's thoroughly blended in the blender)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2/3-3/4 cup of mayonnaise (can be substituted for veganaise - which is actually really good even if you aren't vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley (actually as much as you want.  We put in a handful of parsley and didn't really measure it)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Put everything into the blender (you can mince the parsley and garlic before, but we just throw them in the blender and make sure there aren't any chunks)

That's it!  You may want to see what your consistency is first.  You can add water if it is too thick (usually I add a little because it thickens a little in the fridge)

Enjoy your new salad dressing over an awesome salad.

Lately we've been making our own salads with some tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and goat cheese (I can't get enough goat cheese)

Have a great weekend!
