This versatile, super-quick dressing is great because of its many variations. Instead of plain yogurt, use sour cream, mayonnaise, cream, or puréed soft tofu. Make it with a combination of parsley and tarragon one day, and the next use basil.

Place all the ingredients in a blender, and process for 30 seconds, until a creamy emulsion forms. Taste, and add vinegar a teaspoon at a time until it's to your liking. The dressing will be very thick: add water a tablespoon at a time to reach desired consistency. Adjust the seasoning if needed, and serve.
