Cucumber Basil Vinaigrette

Here's a salad dressing bursting with fresh lemony-basil flavors, and so easy to blend up! To seed a cucumber, simply peel and cut in half lengthwise. Then, with a teaspoon, scoop out seeds and discard. You can find xanthum gum and guar gum, both natural thickeners, in health food stores and often in the flour/baking aisles of regular grocery stores.
