Italian Dressing Recipe

I love a good vinegar based dressing. My favorite dressing growing up was the Zesty Italian packets, the 'make-you-own' kind. Now I am trying to cut out processed food and literally make my own. I made this one today, trying to mimic that dressing. I put mine on a chick pea salad. It will work great on any salad or as a marinade.

Italian Dressing

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
hand full of fresh parsley
1 garlic clove
1 tsp chopped carrots
1 tsp chopped celery
1 tsp chopped red pepper
salt & pepper

Throw all ingredients in a food processor until well blended. Enjoy!

*If you prefer less vinegar tasting dressings, add a tablespoon of water.
