All Purpose Salad Dressing

balsamic-dressingIf you always buy salad dressing at the store, you are missing out.  Homemade salad dressing (vinaigrette) is usually much healthier than store bought brands, simple to make, affordable and it tastes much better.  Give it a try and I bet you’ll never go back.  This recipe is a basic template – experiment with the oils and vinegars to find your favorite combo.  Store and shake in a air tight container.

  • 3/4 cup oil (preferably extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, walnut oil, or flax seed oil)
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (balsalmic vinegar, red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or other vinegar)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped or minced garlic (sprinkle in garlic powder if out of fresh garlic)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground black pepper
  • drizzle of agave or 1 tsp or brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp spicy mustard
  • Sprinkle in other herbs like oregano and basil if desired
