Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing

If you like oil and vinegar salad dressing I have a clean eating recipe for you!! You just blend all the ingredients together and it’s ready in minutes. Many store bought dressings are full of preservatives and sugar. This is much healthier option. You can you a blender or a whisk for this recipe. I used a Magic Bullet which was super easy to you. The best part is that I can store the salad dressing in the same container that I used to blend in by just throw in a lid on it. Hooray for any recipe that creates less dishes!!

So here it is:
Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing

Add all ingredients into Magic Bullet and blend for 15 second. Enjoy.
