Creating your own salad dressing not only is economical but also truly simple. I love the fact they’re so fresh tasting and versatile!

Vinaigrette is, at its heart, simply a balance of vinegar and oil. From there you may add shallots and fresh herbs for a classic take, blend in ripe berries as a bright addition, or add ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil for a bit of an Asian twist. The possibilities are virtually endless and you are only limited by your imagination.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup white wine or apple cider vinegar Add to list
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced shallots Add to list
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons chopped tender herbs such as basil, tarragon, dill, chervil, thyme, parsley, etc. Add to list
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard such as Dijon or stone ground Add to list
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced Add to list
  • Salt and pepper, to taste Add to list
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil Add to list
