Snazzy Balsamic Salad Dressing
I can tell by your face that you’re thinking ‘Really? Is this girl seriously writing a blog post about salad dressing?’ Yes, I am. It’s true but don’t worry, the world won’t come to an end or anything like that… at least not yet.
I know that a lot of people think of salads as kind of boring, maybe as a prep to your main meal. I know some of us use it for colour on a bare-looking plate but this dressing is a little different. Sometimes caesars can be huge and filling but this guy is light and refreshing. Plus it’s my great grandmothers recipe so, how can you go wrong! …and it’s made in a mason jar and takes maybe 5 minutes. This one is a no fuss faraway foodie favorite!
This baby should be a mix of all your favorites so if you think something would compliment the mix, hey! throw it in there, why not experiment? Unlike a souffle, it won’t deflate and it can always be fixed (: Here’s what I like to throw in mine
-mustard (dried or dijon)
-S & P
1. Fill your mason jar about 1/3 full of olive oil, them 1/3 full of balsamic vinegar. If you’re using the jars that are (about) a cup, add 1 clove of garlic (two if you please), about 1 tbs dijon (less for dried), a couple of sprigs of each herb (chopped), 2 bay leaves and about 1 tbs sugar along with a dash of salt and pepper.
Shake and serve atop your favorite lettuce mix!
