Dr. Fuhrman's Walnut Vinaigrette Dressing
This is from a recipe on drfuhrman.com. It is the best vinaigrette I have ever tasted, healthy or not. Everyone who has tasted this salad dressing asks for the recipe. You need a high speed blender or food processor to make the dressing so the raisins and nuts blend with the rest of the ingredients. We have this dressing every day for lunch on a salad of romaine lettuce with extra toppings like green or red pepper, avocado, cucumber, grape tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raw nuts, raisins, sesame seeds, ground flax seed, etc. We like the nuts left whole and put on the salad instead of putting them in the dressing but they should be included in the salad one way or the other to help the absorption of the nutrients in the salad. When I make it, I usually quadruple the dressing recipe and store it in glass jars in the refrigerator.
