I’ve been following this blog since April, and think it’s great I can post my own recipes now. I loved a lot of the dishes that have been posted so far and I like to serve them with salad, it’s a nice light side for a grilled dish. I find most salad dressings from store shelfs to be full of stuff I can’t pronounce, so I decided to try making my own. This is what I made.
When you are done making this vinagrette, you will want to store it in the fridge. That is a good thing to do. But the oil in the dressing will solidify. So when you’re serving this, remember to pull it out of the fridge at least 15 minutes before serving, for the oil to re-liquify, and then shake well.
This dressing is great over a green salad and far better for you than something that comes off the grocery shelf. It has an expiration date too. There are hundreds of combo’s that can be done with this dressing. Try adding chopped green onion, diced bacon, paprika, or use cider vinegar instead.
