  1. Add all the ingredients for the dressing in a medium jar or to a bowl. Shake or whisk until combined. Alternatively, add to a small food processor or a high-speed blender and puree until smooth.

Recipe Notes

How to Store 

You can keep this dressing chilled in the fridge for up to 1 week. Be sure to store it in an airtight container or resealable jar. Give it a good shake or stir before using it to re-combine all of the ingredients.

How to freeze:

Salad dressings generally don't freeze well, as the ingredients tend to separate while they thaw. 

But if you'd like to do some experimentation, try freezing small portions in an ice cube tray for up to 1 month, thawing them out in the fridge and mixing/shaking the thawed mixture very well before using.
