a favorite salad dressing

we love our salads in the spring. nothing is much better than a plate piled high with greens... unless it is a plate piled high with greens & the perfect dressing on top. that's just fantastic. i want to share with you a salad dressing i came across from one of our favorite farms in northern arkansas. we've adapted it to our own liking & the ingredients we find in our pantry most days. 

sunflower seed & herb dressing
makes 1 quart

1 1/2 cups olive oil
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup liquid aminos
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups water
handful of herbs- basil, cilantro, parsley

blend together in mixer until sunflower seeds are chopped well. pour into a quart mason jar & enjoy for one week!


  1. sounds great nat! we always do the same dressing, (basically a balsamic vinaigrette with mustard) which i LOVE, but i could use a little variety. can't wait to try this one!

  2. yummy! thanks for the recipe!


  3. Thank you for such a sweet tutorial - all this time later, I've found it and love the end result. I appreciate the time you spent sharing your skills.
