Almond Caesar Salad Dressing

1/3 cup sliced or slivered almonds
1/3 cup hot water
1-2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp capers, drained

Place the almonds and the hot water in a small bowl, and set them aside to soften, about 15 minutes. In the mean time, mince the garlic finely. Once the almonds are softened, throw them into a blender with the water they were soaked in. Add the garlic and the rest of the ingredients (except the capers), and blend well until nice and creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings. If the dressing seems too thick, add a little more water and blend again. Finally, add the capers and blend for 5 seconds. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
