1 tsp. Sweet Basil, dried
1/2 tsp. Oregano, dried
1/2 tsp. Dill Weed, dried (optional)

We prepare this dressing is a blender.

Place all of the ingredients in the blender container; cover and run at "high" for about 1 minute.  

Reset the blender to a "low" setting, and continue to run until the dressing thickens.  Stop the blender.

Taste the dressing to determine if it is sweet enough, and add a little extra stevia if desired, and additional guar gum if you desire a thicker dressing.  If additional ingredients are added, cover the blender container and run at slow speed for another couple of minutes.

Pour into a dispenser bottle(s) and store all unconsumed dressing in the refrigerator.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
