I haven’t bought a bottle of salad dressing in a long time. Besides the occasional bottle of Newman’s I think it’s been a few years.
Once I started making my own salad dressing I just couldn’t go back to the junky grocery store stuff. The taste is so much better and it’s actually really easy and cheap to make (so why would I go back to the junky grocery store stuff, right?).
This is my go-to salad dressing for all occasions since it’s super easy and has a mild flavor that most people enjoy.
White Wine Vinaigrette
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup white wine (or champagne wine) vinegar
- one clove of garlic, minced (or 1/8 -1/4 tsp garlic powder if you’re in pinch)
- salt and pepper
Mix all of the ingredients in a salad dressing container or mason jar and shake to combine.
Even easier directions: When I have forgotten to make dressing and we are about to sit down to dinner I have been known to just shake a bit of each ingredient over my salad. It works great!
I can’t wait for fresh salad from my garden (I may or may not have just drooled).
