Mystery Dressing: Flavorful Vegan Salad Dressing


Recipe by jae, Domestic Affair Blog – This flavorful vegan salad dressing is similar to something my friend Liz, who I farmed with on Salt Spring Island, used to make. Everyone would go crazy for it, but it was never clear just how the recipe went.  I think I’ve finally got it.  This makes a small amount, but you could just double or triple it one you confirm you’re also in love with the taste.
