We fell in love with this recipe last summer and we're still using it this summer. It's easy and very good.
Cucumber Herb Vinaigrette
From EatingWell: March/April 2009
Pureeing vegetables into a salad dressing is a great way to give it body. Cucumber is the base of this herb-spiked dressing; it provides a mellow grassy flavor and a luxurious texture.

Awesome. This dressing is a healthy indulgence. I used it on a mixed greens salad with a chunk of cold, leftover salmon that had been baked in foil with butter and garlic.
I LOVE this dressing! I add 1 clove fresh garlic and some fresh dill. I usually add it to baby spinach with tomatoes, yellow peppers, and avocado. Sometimes I throw on a little goat cheese. Recently I added some grilled shrimp. This dressing always gets raves. Excellent!
Thank you very much. This looks wonderfully delicious. However, I don't really see the need for sugar. I imagine, though, if one wants a sweetener, honey would be an excellent and healthier substitute for sugar...or even, perhaps, balsamic vinegar instead of sugar and red wine vinegar...that is, if you want a little sweet. Personally, I'd prefer no sweetener using it on a salad, but maybe some sweetener if I use it like a marinade or sauce for salmon.
Light and delicious and perfect for low carb meal plans. Fresh herbs make this special.
