DIRECTIONS
  1. MAKE THE DRESSING: Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy.
  2. PREPARE THE SALAD: In a large salad bowl, put the lettuce and top with cucumber and croutons. Serve the dressing on the side so that people can choose how much to put & that you can store the leftovers. Alternatively, mix in the dressing just before serving (note that leftovers won't keep long if you do so).
