Using vegetables as a base for a dressing instead of oil, is one way to not only bring in more of the nutrient-dense vegetables, but also to lower the heavy Kapha quality that comes with oilier substances.

You can use any fresh herb and spices to create the taste you prefer or the dish you’re using it with.
