  • 1/4 C minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dill weed
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Serve over salad. Store in the refrigerator.
Yield 2 Cups

Mixed Salad
  • baby spinach
  • sliced cucumber
  • cherry tomatoes
  • chopped hard-boiled egg
  • dried cranberries
  • chow mein noodles
  • sliced mushrooms
1. Combine salad ingredients, toss with dressing.

Robyn's notes: I used the blender instead of the food processor to mix the dressing. It was very easy and fast. The salad, of course, can be any salad ingredients you wish, this was just an example of what I used today. He liked it a lot.
