  • juice of 1 lemon about 2 tablespoons
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon celery seed optional
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill
  • 2-3 tablespoons water

~ Use a high speed blender for best smooth results.
~ Use fresh lemon juice, not bottled.
~ Use fresh herbs, not dried.
~ Add water to reach your desired consistency. Use less water to make a thicker consistency that can be used as a dip. Use a little more to make a pourable dressing.
~ Do not blend the herbs with the other ingredients in the blender. Whisk them into the blended dressing.
~ Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add more lemon, spices, or salt to your taste.
~ This recipe can easily be doubled.

Store the dressing in an air-tight container or jar in the fridge for 5 to 6 days.
