and to go with our lovely local greens,
here is our
very favorite salad dressing: 
it also makes a great marinade
and dressing for pasta salad.
                                the base:
                                2 cups canola oil
                                1 cup balsamic vinegar
                                1 cup soy sauce (i use low-sodium tamari)

                                add, more or less, to taste:
                                minced garlic (about 4 cloves)
                                dry mustard (about 1 Tablespoon)
                                salt & pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon each)

this recipe was given to me YEARS ago.
it is from our friend dean.
he is an organic farmer.
he is also missy's husband.
i have often imagined him bottling & selling this dressing.
yes, it's that good.
