I did promise some recipes, and have been quite lax. However, I am about to divulge my A#1 Favorite Salad Dressing recipe. Ever. Seriously, this is pretty much all I have used for a very long time. I even carry a small container of it with me into restaurants. I don’t like added sugar, soybean or vegetable oils tainting my gorgeous greens. Bringing my own supply of yummy goodness helps me in that endeavor. I have taken a couple of my favorite recipes and combined them to find MY perfect salad sauce. Enjoy!
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 clove of garlic, minced or pressed
1 tbsp Horseradish Mustard
1-2 tsp dried mixed Italian herbs (Greek mixed herbs work well, too, but I am partial to Italian)
Mix together very well and serve on salad. Good olive oil will solidify when refrigerated, so remove the dressing from the refrigerator 10-15 minutes before you intend to use it. I am very, VERY partial to Kasandrinos Imported Olive Oil.
(Today for dinner, I drizzled this yumminess on a salad made with greens picked from my garden, organic grape tomatoes, diced organic red onion, about 2 tbsp feta cheese and 1/2 cup flaked smoked lake trout. It was outstanding. I almost felt virtuous!)
