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.
