Often, when I peek into peoples' refrigerators, I see upon the shelves a multitude of bottled salad dressings. Everyone loves salad but many don't know how easy it is to make a delicious homemade vinaigrette. The basic proportion of a vinaigrette are 3 parts oil, 1 part tangy (vinegar, citrus). Add some salt and pepper, find yourself a left over jam jar with a good lid, and you are ready to start dressing. Note: I can not stress the importance of having a tightly fitted lid, as I’ve spilled more dressings when I’ve gone to shake it.
Here are a few tried and true recipes I make in my house. You'll never buy bottled again!
