3 tablespoons raw organic honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or one fresh, finely chopped garlic clove)
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
2 teaspoons of Celtic Sea Salt
Pour all ingredients into a salad dressing jar and shake vigorously. We have found it gets better the longer it sits. We refrigerate it and the olive oil thickens somewhat, which makes it cling to the salad better.

Dash of the following: cayenne pepper; curry; kelp powder; favorite dried herbs (I use a mix of basil, chervil, tarragon, marjoram and chives). Find an herb mix that you like. Add distilled water to consistency you like--the thin you can use on salads, the thick as a veggie dip or whole grain/rice snack cracker spread.

Avocado Dressing

Mash the avocado until smooth, add the lemon juice until a creamy consistency is obtained. To Serve: Place leaf lettuce on a plate, spread with avocado mixture, top with raw sweet corn salad.

Gosia Simple dressing ideas:

* orange juice and tahini (I simply squeeze the juice on the salad, then pour tahini, and then mix)
* strawberries and tahini, processed
* lemon juice, tahini, water, processed
* as above, but use nuts/seeds (macademias, sunflower, hemp, sesame etc), processed with water, instead of tahini

1 1/2 C cashews or macadamia nuts (I used a combo of both, mostly macs though)
1/2 C water

1/2 tsp dried basil (or 2 leaves fresh)
