    I made this and it was wonderful. I didn’t have apple cider vinegar so I used balsamic, left off the stevia because the balsamic is sweet. I also added a few walnuts to the food processor to hold the oil together with the other liquid. It really makes a divine, refreshing dressing. Thank you!

    I’ve got almost everything on hand to make this! Sounds great! Just missing the aminos. Anything I can substitute? Or just leave out? Thanks!
