Make the dressing in the blender or food processor. Ingredients are listed in order of quantity added (the olive oil is the largest quantity item, everything below herbs/spices the smallest).
When using the blender, the dressing usually appears thin. If you use the dressing quickly, you may not have to refrigerate it and can use as is. However, I keep the dressing for at least two weeks so refrigeration is necessary.
Refrigeration makes the dressing too thick to pour so I do one of the following:
- remove the dressing from the fridge 30 minutes before using
- add water to it when still in the blender, which takes some trial and error to get the consistency right
- add water after the first 30 minute warming up time.
