  1. I love making my own salad dressing and find it healthier and better tasting than store-bought ones, but I keep making the same one all the time (extra-virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, little sea salt, cracked pepper... mmm soo good). I need some more variety, so if you have a good and simple recipe, please share! Thanks in advance! :tup:
     
  2. You can add, to your basic recipe, fresh herbs, shallot, mustard, basically anything you want to taste...
    I am making a warm bacon vinaigrette this weekend--I'll let you know how it goes!
    I also make a basil curry vin which is what you have listed, plus basil and curry!
     
  3. My Recipe:

    Olive Oil (good kind)
    Balsamic Vinegar
    Dijon Mustard
    Salt
    Pepper
    little bit of jam
     
  4. This is my recipie. There are no set amounts, I just eyeball it, but don't put too much lemon in.

    Olive oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt, pepper.
     
  5. Thank you so much for the great ideas!
     
  6. dijon mustard
    cracked black pepper
    salt
    red wine vinegar
    shallots
    garlic
    drizzle in extra virgin olive oil.


    it's especially good with spanish,parmesan cheese, hard boiled eggs, sliced red onions, shredded carrots, tomatoes, and some garlic croutons. SOOOOOO GOOODDDDD!!! my absolute favorite salad and very healthy and well balanced.
     

  7. ooohh! I just got a bottle of organic raspberry jam from my local Trader Joes, I think I am gonna try this. THanks
     
  8. Raspberry jam goes great in the dressing! I mix it all up in a little measuring cup (not that I measure anything) and keep it in a jar in the fridge.

    OKay here is what i like it on:

    mixed greens
    Gargonzola (or goat cheese)
    dried cranberries (or sometimes apples or raspberries)
    walnuts (or sometimes sliced almonds)

    so usually it's gargonzola, cran and walnuts combo or goat, apple, almond combo.


    If I am going to put feta on a salad I usually make a greek salad dressing which is also easy.
     
  9. Mmmmm, thanks for sharing!
     
  10. olive oil, white vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, little sugar
     
  11. Your dressing sounds really good, actually.

    I can never really eat salad because it's so bland on its own and I have yet to find a dressing that I like, other than just vinegar, so this is a cool thread. Wish I had some veggies right now.
     
  12. Extra virgin olive oil
    red wine vinegar
    black pepper
    1 garlic clove
    honey
    spicey mustard
    oregano
    some finely chopped onions if you like
    and I also put red pepper (totally up to you ;)
     
  13. i, too, also make dijon vinegrette

    -dijon mustard
    -olive oil
    -rice vinegar
    -crushed black pepper
    -oregano
     
  14. Mmm, thanks so much! That sounds really good.
     
  15. I LOVE homemade Caesar, anchovies and all :shame:

    I forget what all is in it without looking at the recipe, but I know it has: olive oil, lemon juice, fresh garlic, anchovy fillets, ground pepper, pepper, raw egg...

    People always think it's delicious if they don't know what's in it :P
