This is a very simple dressing to put together, with a nice acidic balance. I use a mini processor, in which case, I need to thin the dressing with a teaspoon or two of water. If you simply shake it in a jar with a tight lid, omit the water. A staple in my house, it is also wonderful un-thined, over asparagus.
