anyone with a salad dressing like the one at The Gourmet Ashram??

I was on campus at USC the other day, and I I stopped by a temporary cafe--it was a guy serving vegetarian food (vaguely Hari Krishna style). What stood out was an AMAZING salad dressing. The best I've ever tasted in my life! I ended up doing what a lot of people there were doing--I bought a bag of the dry salad dressing mix to take home. Wow...just as good when I made it from his mix.

But the mix is horribly expensive, and I'd love to take a crack at making it from scratch. It has almonds, amino acids, nutritional yeast and spices, per the nutritional info on their own website. (You then combine r 1 part dry dressing mix; 1 part neutral oil; 1 part water.) Anyone tried this guy's dressing? Anyone been able to replicate it, or come anywhere close?

And, for anyone on campus at USC (on Wednesdays and Thursday, I think), here's the guy's website.
