Insert the metal blade. With the machine running, drop the garlic down the small feed tube, process 5 seconds to chop. Add the fresh parsley, dried basil and oregano, salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar, process 10 seconds to blend. With the machine running, add the olive oil one third cup at a time through the hole in the small feed tube pusher. Process 1 minute longer until totally emulsified. Adjust seasonings to taste. Allow the dressing to rest for 30 minutes before using to allow the flavors to blend. Refrigerate unused portions, bring to room temperature (30 minutes) before using and reprocess to emulsify using the metal blade if necessary.
