Rated 5 out of 5 by VitaNewbie from Fabulous Sald Dressing! :-D I'm a VitaNewbie and am having sooo much fun discovering new/old foods I love and Vitamix recipes. Who knew I loved spinach smoothies?! This recipe, like my going green smoothies, is absolutely delicious. Omg. I love salad dressing and was looking for a recipe to use with my Vitamix. I had all these ingredients, including organic balsamic vineger, and had to give this a shot. Delish!! Amazing taste and the lemon gives it a lovely little extra kick. I doubled it so I could add it all to a mason jar. Ooh, baby this is a keeper. I. Love. My. Vitamix. And I've only had it 4 days now.

What changes would u make if you have the 64 oz shorter and wider container? I love your recipes but want to know how to revise them for success! Thanks!
You will need to make 3x the batch. If you are making any of the recipes in your 64 oz low profile container you will need to double or even triple the recipe most times.
