Celery Seed Salad Dressing

In addition to this basil salad dressing (which may be one of my top favorites), I discovered recently this celery seed salad dressing (recipe below).  I found the recipe through the book Simply in Season: Recipes that celebrate fresh, local foods in the spirit of More-with-Less, which is a cookbook commissioned by the Mennonites to “promote the understanding of how the food choices we make affect our lives and the lives of those who produce the food”…pretty neat.  What I love about this dressing is that it is tangy and sweet and the teensiest bit spicy!
