Lately I’ve been getting tons of requests for Chef David Smith’s Creamy Italian Dressing.  So for all you fans out there, here it is:

  • packed 1/2 c fresh basil
  • packed 1/2 c fresh parsley
  • 1/2 c chopped scallion greens
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • 1 c white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 c canola oil
  • 1/3 c cold water

Blend all but the oil and water, until completely liquefied.  While blending, slowly add about 1/3 of the oil until the dressing is emulsified and thick.  Add a few tablespoons of water to thin, then continue to add oil and water, alternating, until all oil is incorporated into the dressing.

Refrigerate in a glass jar and use to flavor salads, grains, legumes and meats.  Enjoy!
