Dairy Free Creamy Italian Dressing

First off...
Happy New Year friends! I hope your holidays were merry and bright!
Ours was very quiet and chilled. Nothing too exciting in our household.

The blog did get a nice facelift though! Do you like it? I'm still working on what elements I want to add but I'm overall pleased with it. I hope you all like it too!

Let's get into the new year with a new recipe, shall we?

I was that weird child that always enjoyed a good salad before the pizza arrived. I remember growing up and ordering a side salad with creamy Italian dressing from our local pizza place. I still am that way, I like a good side salad before most meals.
However, since I ventured into the dairy-free realm, I've missed that creamy Italian goodness.

Until now.

What I love most about this recipe, which is what I strive to do with most of my other recipes, is it's super simple. So many dairy-free dressing recipes require soaked nuts or tofu and sometimes that just not doable. This has a lovely vegan mayonnaise base and is packed with amazing flavor.
