Check out my new logo thing at the top! Think I can do a handstand or something?
Anyway, since I can remember my mom has never bought salad dressing… except for that really good miso soy one that they used to sell at Costco. When I started to get into cooking and wanted to help out in the kitchen she would always give me the job of making the salad dressing. I quickly mastered it and when it was time for me to live on my own I continued to make her dressings.
Making dressing is really simple, fun, and not to mention a lot healthier!
When I made the salad dressing for my mom there were always two rules.
Never put the dressing on too early (it will become soggy)
Do not put on too much dressing
Okay, now let’s get to it.
The measurements really depend on how big the salad, but if you make too much you can always save it for another night.
garlic or shallot (or both!)
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
It is really best to make the dressing ahead and let all of the ingredients soak together.
