Homemade Salad Dressing

It’s so easy to make salad dressing at home, especially a vinaigrette.  It’s just oil, vinegar, and seasoning.  This recipe calls for dried herbs so the ingredients are commonly already on hand.  And, the flavor is worth the little bit of effort it takes to make this easy recipe.

If there are leftovers, seal and store in the refrigerator.  But, once it is refrigerated, the dressing gets thick.  To loosen it up, let it come to room temperature for a few minutes before serving.  Or, run warm water over the sealed container for a few seconds.

    Thanks so much for the homemade version of a favorite dressing I can’t find at the store anymore. I saved the last empty bottle, though, so the label is correct – and it actually drizzles instead of pouring out like a waterfall! But the vinaigrette tastes so much better when freshly made with no preservatives or other chemicals.

    This is my go-to salad dressing, it’s very good! I make it vegan by substituting agave nectar for honey and it’s just as tasty, and I always add a teaspoon of dill as well. I love to make a “Greek” salad with feta, chopped olives, tomatoes, chopped marinated artichoke hearts and this dressing. So delicious!

    1. Ya, that would be my only alteration I think. If everyone thinks it is so good with powder, it’s gotta be bomb with fresh chopped garlic!!

    This dressing was a delicious, fast and easy one to make to drizzle over cucumbers for a nice summer salad. It is packed full of flavor!
