Store: Or, transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Lemon Juice: If you don’t like a tart dressing, decrease the lemon juice to 1 tablespoon. You can always add more when you adjust the dressing to taste in step three.
Herbs: You can use any FRESH herbs you like! Parsley, basil, chives, tarragon, cilantro and/or dill are all delicious! You don’t need to go all out and purchase them all. I recommend selecting 2-3 of your favorites!
Processor: Make sure you stop and scrape down the sides and bottom of the food processor bowl as needed!
