Another installment in our Make-it-Yourself Monday feature...
I love to make my own salad dressing, though it's honestly more taste-motivated than savings-motivated. I enjoy the variety and flexibility afforded me when I mix it up myself and the option of choosing high-quality ingredients.
Here's my favorite homemade dressing recipe--feel free to add or subtract ingredients to your liking. I rarely make it the same way twice, and that's part of what I love about making it myself.
Sweet & Sour Garlic Dressing
1 C. olive oil (or other oil of your choice)
2/3 C. vinegar
1/2 C. honey
Seasoned salt to taste
Combine all in jar and shake to mix. Store in refrigerator. (Olive oil will solidify during refrigeration--you can let it sit out for a few hours or pop it into the microwave for a few seconds to soften it.)
My mom came up with this one...
1/4 C. canola oil
2 T. vinegar
2 T. raspberry juice concentrate (from the frozen juice section of the store)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 t. salt
pepper to taste
Combine in jar and shake to mix. Store in refrigerator.
