I can't remember the last time I purchased salad dressing. Once I started making my own, there was no going back. Years ago, when I was dealing with picky eating kids, I read the book French Kids Eat Everything. It was a game changer in my house and it was the first time I tried making simple salad dressings that ended up replacing giant store-bought bottles of ranch. Fast forward to today and I'm making every kind of dressing under the sun. This simple lemon garlic vinaigrette recipe is fabulous.
Gather up your ingredients:
Whisk them all together or shake them up in a mason jar or salad dressing bottle and you are good to go.
One key thing I've learned over the years is to hunt down and purchase good quality olive oil. It's worth the price because you can taste the difference. Much of the extra virgin olive oil out there is cut with other oils. Do a little research on your own. My research led me to buy directly from Villa Cappelli.Print
