Happy Wednesday, Healthy Living Friends!  Last night I was playing with my new food processor and testing out all of the different features and decided to try this very simple and basic salad dressing recipe to go with our giant dinner salad.  Enjoy!

Greens with Basil Avocado Dressing

Basil Avocado Lime Dressing

1/4 cup or so of filtered water
