I am hoping to ease back into blogging with a wonderfully easy salad dressing recipe. The base of it is one I've been using for a few months, but discovered the special ingredient while watching an episode of The Pioneer Woman's show on Food Network.
I love making my own salad dressing, and I hope you will too. Once you see how easy it is to manipulate with different flavors (such as adding in some Dijon mustard, or using a different kind of vinegar), you can have a lot of fun with it.
Ingredients (serves 2-3)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- a few shakes each of salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tsp brown sugar (if gluten-free, make sure to use a GF brown sugar, such as Domino brand)
- Combine all ingredients in a resealable container. Shake well before serving.
Note: Store on the shelf, not in the fridge, as olive oil will coagulate.
