Dressed to thrill! An easy vinaigrette for every occasion.Salads / January 30, 2014
No question about it, once you learn how to make your own salad dressings you will NEVER GO BACK TO BOTTLED AGAIN. And it’s so dang easy that good salads are now a given every time you create a meal for those you love.
There are a lot of combinations for making your own dressing — an endless amount really — but the basics are an oil, an acid, and then your choice flavors. From there you can add something to give it body and dimension like onion, syrup, honey, fruit, etc. Then emulsify everything together, and voila: COOL GREENS AND KILLER SALADS.
Here is my go to recipe for nearly every occasion, which is a good lemon mustard shallot vinaigrette. Looking for more options?
