Those who know we well know I LOVE salad like a crazy person. It’s true. So naturally I have at least 3 salad dressing recipes that will have you eating so much lettuce you’ll make Peter Rabbit jealous. Just saying.
Also, if you’re looking for a salad dressing to dress up broccoli or broccolini for your kids or hubby, try these first. My kids love the balsamic dressing. It stays a week in the jar but we usually use a full recipe so I always make it fresh.
Without further adieu, here’s my top 3 on major rotation, and yes my kids are FANS!
Balsamic Vinaigrette (recipe can be doubled)
Mince 2 cloves of garlic and add the following ingredients in a small jar with lid:
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T balsamic vinegar
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
Shake vigorously and serve. Store in fridge up to a week.
Oriental Dressing ( from my Mother-in-Law)
4 T sugar
1 t salt
2 t. soy sauce
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 T white vinegar
Combine in a lidded jar and shake well.
Lemon Dijon – sounds funky but so fresh and yummy!
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard.
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic.
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar.
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
1/2 cup good olive oil.
I also like this simple version: Lemon Dijon
fresh squeezed lemon // dijon // olive oil // salt
