    Very nice dressing. I used rice vinegar since I did not have red wine vinegar.

    I will try making this without the oil. Oil is bad for the heart. I hate cilantro so I will use basil or parsley instead and a a few soaked dates to get the sweetness that would come from sugar except now that is still bound to fiber via the date. Looks good.

    This would be a good use of the cilantro stems. They will add plenty of taste.

    I tried to liquefy cilantro and oil in my Blendtec once. It liquefied, sure, but the cilantro lost ALL taste. I know you’re not supposed to cook with cilantro but it seems like you can’t put it in a high-test blender, either, without whatever delicate stuff is in there getting denatured (or something). Thoughts?
