Guess what inspired this recipe?  The glass container that I found at TJ Max. haha  I get excited over dishware, what can I say.  The label read that it was a “diet shaker” but I knew it would make a great salad dressing container.  I see a person can buy them on Amazon.  I only paid $4.99 at TJ Max.  It has a great snap on lid, a pour spout and it’s glass.  You’ll just have to forgive my not-so-creative picture tonight that I took.  I couldn’t get into the flow of photography tonight so I just opened the fridge and snapped a shot.  But did I mention that I love the container? :)

    Hi Amie Sue,

    Well I thought I would go in the kitchen, and whip up a new salad dressing to go with our salad for lunch. Gene was talking to me, while I was having a blonde moment in space :]. I put in 2 avocado’s instead of 2 cups zucchini.
    I didn’t realize my error until I put in the water to get the avocado blended. OOOOOPPSSS :0 Well whats a girl to do but make 4x’s the amount (so I wouldn’t waste the avocado’s).
    Well I had to taste test this (no double dipping,well I used two separate celery stalks :]), OMGOSH It is fantastic!!!!! So I gave Gene (who has gourmet taste buds and is married to a Lucille Ball in the kitchen. Not really but I was today :] ). He can always tell me what my ingredients are in anything he eats. BUTTTTTT
    not today- he said ” Oh this has mayo in it”- BEEP – WRONG. Then he said well it has basil in it-BEEP- WRON again. I started laughing (he was too), I started to dance a little jig and stated well she is GOOD, she fooled you !!! We had a good laugh and he said “I bet you are gonna tell her , “but of course I am, she makes me smile, it’s time to return the favor”. Have a great evening ( I can’t keep off this website :] Signed one happy camper Lyn :]

    P.S. If anyone wants to know – 4 x’s the recipe will fill a Vitamix blender and still get it all blended nicely, and it fills 2- 32 oz. jars :] and it’s YUMMY FOR THE TUMMY !!!!!!!!!

    I just finished making this and am sitting typing and chowing down on a salad with this dressing on top. It’s wonderful! It’s remarkable how similar it is to Italian dressing (and might I add better since I don’t actually like typical Italian). I dressed up my own garden grown variety of kale, tomatoes (3 types) and Swiss Chard with other organic (store bought) produce of mint, hemp seeds, avocado and green apples. Delicioso! Thank you!
