You met Heidi Mikitish in our People of Our West series about her and her husband, Joe, who have a nice mini-farm happening in their back yard where they not only feed their family, but up to six other families in need as well. When we were walking around their huge garden she would talk about how she was going to make this and that with what they harvested from their garden. Thank you Heidi for contributing and sharing with everyone.
Garlic Caesar Dressing
By Heidi Mikitish
1/3 cup Virgin Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice (not concentrate)
1tsp mustard seed powder
Crushed Pepper to taste
2-3 cloves of fresh crushed garlic
1 T organic sugar, or sweetener of choice
Shake well in a pint mason jar and enjoy!
For a creamy dressing add 3 T of mayonnaise or silken tofu
My favorite Summer variation to this recipe is adding:
Fresh chopped chives, lemon thyme, fresh basil and a whole pureed fresh tomato
