Recipe to try - Vegan Ranch Dressing

I haven't made this yet, but it sounds and looks great and I want to.  So I'm saving the recipe here.  If you make it before I do, let me know how it goes!

Vegan Ranch Dressin'

1 tub medium-firm tofu

Juice of 1 lemon

4 tablespoons chive oil

3 tablespoons dill pickle juice

4 cloves garlic, minced fine

1 tsp mustard, spicy

1.5 tablespoons each - minced parsley, chives and dill, fresh

20-30 twists of your pepper grinder (yup, I like mine punchy)

In a blender, blend the first 4 ingredients until super-smooth (you can add a little more oil if you need to, and remember to scrape down the sides as you go). Scrape the white sauce into a bowl and add remaining ingredients.

Taste for salt and add a little more if you need, but usually the pickle juice + mustard is enough for moi. Resist the temptation to add nutritional yeast - this is just tangy enough as it is.
