Pesto Inspired Salad Dressing

Recipe by: Claudia 

8 ounces avocado
2 ounces pine nuts
24 Fresh Basil Leaves
1 quart of low sodium vegetable juice
8 cloves of garlic
2 tsp salt-free Italian seasoning
5 TBSP + 1 tsp lemon juice

Blend well in vitamix or blender. If you get really large garlic cloves, like what I've been getting lately, you might want to cut back a little on the garlic. My last batch was a bit more intense than usual. I didn't know there was any such thing as too much garlic, but apparently when it is raw, and you use enough of it, it really can overpower other ingredients.
