Recipe by Troop Angel

This is my favorite dressing now! It was recommended to me by my boss, and it's so fresh and yummy and so easy to make! I hope you like it too! Note: The original recipe calls for 1 extra-large egg yolk, but I don't care for raw eggs, so I leave it out, which the recipe says is fine to do. I just added it as an option.

This is a quick and flavorful salad dressing. I made as written and omitted the optional egg yolk. Great dressing to prepare when you are in a hurry.
