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 here in Wyoming, 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 at a moment's notice. One of our favorite ways to enjoy salad is a Composed Salad. And the best part of any 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 of a 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 tangy food, try Rice Wine Vinegar, for an especially mild vinaigrette. 


I hope you give this easy-going vinaigrette a try. It is a good recipe to enjoy as you explore the different flavors of vinegar available at your marketplace. And don't let the soy sauce fool you, this is not an Asain flavored vinaigrette. Soy sauce is simply the easiest way to add “salt” to the vinaigrette! And that my friend is one of 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!
