Everyday Vinaigrette!

Warm weather and a plethora of salad greens are right around the corner. So be prepared with your own homemade salad dressings! Everyday Vinaigrette is one we keep in constant rotation for delicious composed salads at a moment's notice. 


A salad is a great way to make sure you get your vegetables for the day. 
Because we are so rural in our new home, we don’t always have traditional salad greens. But we always have other fresh vegetables, seasonal greens, and homegrown sprouts to put together for a quick salad anytime. And the best part of an impromptu salad? The dressing of course!

This Everyday Vinaigrette salad dressing is so easy. It calls for basic ingredients and is perfectly delicious! It is a mild-flavored vinaigrette, especially enjoyable to those who have more pucker factor. I think vinaigrettes are overlooked due to the strong vinegar flavor found in many recipes. But this one is perfect for a custom-order flavor for your family. For those that are not fans of sour food, try Rice Wine Vinegar, for an especially mild vinaigrette. 


I hope you give it a try. This easy-going dressing is a good recipe to use as you explore the different flavors of vinegar. Don't let the soy sauce fool you, this is not an Asain flavored vinaigrette, it is the easiest way to add “salt” to the vinaigrette! That my friend was the best cooking tip ever!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • oil
  • vinegar of choice
  • sugar or honey
  • dijon mustard
  • soy sauce
You will also need the following:
  • liquid measuring cup
  • measuring spoons
  • storage/shaker jar, or
  • storage container
Now we are ready to begin!

    1. Right!? I don't think we have purchased salad dressing in years. This one is also a great marinade for meats.
