Creamy Garlic Dressing

I am sooo excited to say that Spring has finally hit the upper Midwest! This past week we had to put up with what I *hope* is a last blast of 30 degree weather and even snow just north of us, but today I was just out in our garden surveying the layout and deciding when and how to plant this year. (Hush all you readers from Texas that have had 80 degree weather for a month already! LOL).

When the warmer weather hits we instantly start to crave fruits and salads. Something instinctive sends me to the store for lettuce and berries. Ha ha. So today I am digging through some of my warmer weather recipes and making menu's for the next couple weeks.

If you have a garlic lover (as I do!) in the family, check out this recipe for a creamy garlic salad dressing. Not only delicious but healthy too! Garlic is a power food!
