This Romesco vinaigrette salad dressing from chef Geoffrey Zakarian is smoky yet light. It has a nutty flavor from the almonds, along with fresh and fragrant basil leaves. Not only is this dressing tasty, but it is also high in fiber, making it a guilt-free and savory treat! Enjoy it on a fresh salad or hearty grain bowl.
