Notes

Note on Oils: 

*If you plan to cook with this dressing (i.e. as a marinade), be sure to use a high smoke point oil!

Extra-virgin olive oil has a low smoke point—meaning it will release toxic byproducts when heated above a certain temperature, and it is best used on cold dishes like salads. For cooking, use high smoke point oils like light or extra-light olive oil, or avocado oil.
