“Creamy” Basil Dressing

I originally used about 2 cups of basil and the final product didn’t seem quite basil flavored enough for me and tossed another cup in at the end. Then it was perfect. (Makes about 1 1/2- 2 cups)

Cherrie’s Dijon Salad Dressing

there’s the basic recipe. but for those of you who know me, could this possibly have been good enough!? of course not! hehe. to this, i added a tablespoon or so of nutritional yeast, and two teaspoons or so of chicken flavored veggie broth powder. then a bunch of dried parsley and basil. (these additions made it creamy instead of watery). it tastes delicious! and trust me with the crushed garlic a little will go a long way.

      A long time ago, as my friend Jim was building the masonry stove in the house on Asbury Street, we got into a discussion about whether it’s satisfying to be right all the time.
