I used to loathe making salad dressings. I couldn’t tell you why.
Whenever my family was hosting a dinner party, I always delegated the dressing duty to my mother.
She had the magic touch.
Making salad dressing was just the nagging task in the kitchen I did not want to be bothered with.
A bottle was so much easier… and I was perfectly content with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
I think it was this past Thanksgiving, when I was on salad duty, that I concocted this recipe.
I wasn’t about to pour store-bought dressing on my contribution to the meal of all meals – oh, the horror.
Now, although I still stock a bottle of Annie’s in my fridge, I’ve thrown together this easy, 5-ingredient vinaigrette a handful of times.
A tangy delight, it will dress up the simplest of salads…
or add that extra hint of homemade to your most gourmet.
This is a true foodie run-home-for-lunch Monday meal… not too shabby, eh?
