Recipe: Fresh Herb Vinaigrette (or Marinade)

We're almost always blessed with a bounty of fresh herbs in our gardens. This has become my favorite salad dressing. You can mix and match a variety of herbs, depending on what you have on hand.

1 oz. fresh herbs (tarragon, savory, thyme, parsley, sage, and/or basil)
1 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 to 1/2 cup vinegar (to taste)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
pinch black pepper
pinch cayenne powder
dash of Bragg's Liquid Aminos or soy sauce (opt)

Rinse herbs and remove any brown or tough stems. Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend. Adjust seasonings to taste.
For a great marinade, just omit the vinegar.
