Combine all ingredients either in food processor, blender or in a bowl if using an immersion (stick) blender.

NOTE: I have noticed that the dressing becomes thick in the fridge - so thin with a wee bit of milk if desired.

Yummm! The combination of vegetables with the greens, basil, bread, etc. was phenomenal. But, the dressing was sooo good with the added crusty bread to soak it all up made it pure salad heaven! Thanks so much for sharing, Luvcookn! Made it for Billboard Tag.

While I cut the salad back I did make the dressing as posted - I used the extra dressing on my dinner salads. A really good dressing that I have added to my cookbook.Loved the addition of the grilled vegetables. Made a great lunch and enough for lunch the next day. Enjoyed!
