Comfort Curried Salad Dressing

Makes about 1½ cups.

We enjoy this dressing as the finishing flourish for salads (think, potato, chicken, rice, or green salads). Comfort Curry supplies loads of flavor and a lovely golden hue. We also drizzle it over roasted beets and grilled eggplant or chicken — cilantro or toasted cashews make the perfect garnish.

¾ cup mild oil, such as grapeseed
½ cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Comfort Curry blend
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (heaping)
1 tablespoon honey
1 small garlic clove, grated (½ teaspoon)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Black pepper, to taste

Whiz all the ingredients with the blender (or use an emulsion blender) to combine them until the dressing is thick, smooth, and creamy. 

The dressing keeps for a week or more, tightly covered, in the fridge. As with most homemade vinaigrettes, it may separate a bit and require a vigorous shake before use.
