I am trying this as a sauce for tuna and noodles. My daughter-in- law has high cholesterol and I’m trying new ways to cook which should be good for all of us. I will add celery, White pepper, mushrooms and maybe a little red bell pepper to the blender.

Agreed that it’s hard to believe there aren’t more comments here. This is so easy, seriously yummy, and satisfying! I love eating it with carrot sticks or celery.

Hard to believe no one else has commented, because I find this is a great tasting salad dressing!
