    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping. From Martha Rose Shulman's "Fast Vegetarian Feasts", received in February 2009 Cookbook Swap. A little bit of oil can go a long way. Instead of whisking, use a blender to make a fairly thick, emulsified mixture. You can vary this with any herbs or spices you wish (the 2-3 teaspoons of fresh herbs can be any combination you prefer, suggested herbs are listed). The author recommends the yogurt variation when "you want to eat nothing but salads, but have to work in protein." I recommend the Avocado variation during the maintenance phase of WW, because the avocado has healthy fat and aids digestion if your calories permit. See Tamari Bouillon Broth With Instant Variation #361079 for a tasty broth variation.

      This was nice. I also recommend using a blender for this recipe. I tried the tomato option, and put it on a spinach salad and didn't like the way it looked on the plate. Then I blended up the leftovers and tried it on a romaine lettuce salad, and much prefered the way it tasted and looked. I didn't have dijon or fresh basil so I used dry mustard and fresh parsley - I might have prefered it with the former. Thanks!
