Lemon Garlic Dressing

I love this simple and easy to make dressing. It has a strong fragrance and bold flavor. Consistency is quite thick, especially after you keep it in the fridge. So while it doesn't yield a lot, you really need only a tiny amount of the dressing and toss the salad good with it - i.e. a teaspoon for a plate of salad. Other than for salad, try it as dipping sauce for roast chicken or pork.

 Lemon Garlic Dressing

Yield: 180 ml
Total time: 11 minutes

  • 1 Lemon - peeled, halved
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce (Sriracha)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic - peeled
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) Olive Oil

  1. Place lemon, hot sauce, garlic, paprika, and seasonings into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 45 seconds to 1 minute, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
  5. Reduce speed to Variable 7 and remove lid plug. While machine is running, slowly pour in oil through lid opening.
  6. Blend for 20 seconds.
If doubling, use 2 lemons, increase hot sauce to 1 teaspoon, paprika to 1 teaspoon, cumin to 1/2 teaspoon, and increase olive oil to 1 cup.
