Homemade VinaigretteYes..Yes you can probably get coupons for salad dressing and be frugal just getting it at the grocery store. But homemade salad dressing is so yummy and doesn’t have any artificial ingredients. It is so simple, too. And since you can double the recipe easily you can make just enough for a day or two and enjoy the freshness!!

Homemade Salad Dressing

Apple Cider Vinaigrette- Serves 4-6 when tossed with salad

5-6 tablespoons Olive oil- or your favorite oil
2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (I recommend unfiltered)
1 tsp your favorite mustard (brown or yellow)
Salt to taste)
Pepper (to taste) (fresh ground is best)

Optional- pick either/or
garlic powder
onion powder

Possible herbs- fresh or dried- choose one, maybe two. If fresh a tsp or 2 will do, if dried a pinch
Italian Seasoning
or any for your favorite herbs

Whisk together in a bowl all the ingredients. The mustard will emulsify the oil and vinegar. Serve immediately or store in a covered container in the fridge for a few days.

I also recommend experimenting with different oils, vinegars and herb combos- find your favorite!! The best ratio for oil to vinegar is 3 to 1- so if you want to make more or less keep this in mind.

    oh YES! I can’t even imagine wasting $ on salad dressing. I usually just drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the salad… sometimes lemon juice..etc. I have not purchased salad dressing in probably 25 years! I don’t like the stuff they put in it…ick I DID buy some dressing recently at Trader Joe’s after sampling it being used as a cooking sauce…a quick drizzle over chicken made it worth while and it has sesame seed paste in it which gave it a unique flavor without the work of getting and working with tahani.
