Anusha Rouse’s Green Dressing

 

“This dressing has been a staple in my home for many years. It started as just garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice, but over time, I’ve found just the right ingredients that my family adores. Not only do we enjoy this dressing on a green salad, but we use it for roasted vegetables, couscous, chicken, and more!”
