Every Day Salad Dressing

Every Day Salad Dressing

I think most nationalites have a basic vinagrette recipe.

In our family, my gram dressed the salad to order - just olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper.

She didn’t whisk it in a bowl, just drizzled unmeasured amounts over the greens and mixed it with her hands.

This version has a mix of vinegars and the addition of lemon juice and honey. 

The rule here is 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. Beyond that, you can do whatever you like.

If you like more lemon juice and less red wine vinegar, you can make that adjustment just as log as you follow the 3 to 1 rule. 

Like it sweeter? Add more honey. Some people prefer sugar. It’s your choice. 

I make this dressing at home every night. It’s pretty basic, but you could add some minced basil or parsley. That would be nice.

A cup of dressing could dress a pretty big salad, so find a container for your dressing  and put a lid on it.

It will be good tomorrow, and the next day and the next…
