“Recipe taken from Since I'm a vegetarian & no one else in my family is, I decided to contribute to the food this Thanksgiving in my own way. I found this recipe and website through PETA. It's very easy to make and everyone loved it! Don't worry if when you make the dressing the vinegar smell is overwhelming because it's not in the taste. Enjoy!”
