This recipe was recently added to my favorites. It is simple to make and tastes good. I think it is comparable to a creamy ranch salad dressing. It is a bit sweet with a well balanced flavor of onion and dill. Soft tofu makes a nice salad dressing. But often I have used firm tofu to make it thick, which is really good on baked potatoes, sandwiches, or crackers. I usually double the recipe because it doesn’t last long…I love it! I hope you do too.
To simplify the recipe more I just throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth. If you want it thinner, use the soy milk (second ingredient), but if you like it thick, just add a little more tofu.
I wish I could take credit for inventing this recipe, but I can’t. It is from More Choices cookbook by Cheryl D. Thomas-Peters, RD, page 137.
