Want a healthier, tastier salad? Try making your own dressings. It’s not difficult.  Here’s a dressing using garden herbs that you can use for salads, sandwiches and as a dip for bread.

What you’ll need

red wine vinegar, at least 12 ounces

fresh garden herbs on the stem- oregano, thyme, basil (add your favorites)

antique bottle with a cap (found a couple at an antique store)

Recipe

Place herbs, stem and all, in bottle.  Pour in vinegar.  Cap, let sit for 1 day and use.  I place mine on my windowsill as grab as needed.

 

To make herb vinaigrette

Use a 3 to 1 ratio (ie- 3 tablespoons olive oil to 1 tablespoon vinegar)

What you’ll need

olive oil, extra virgin, 6 tablespoons

herb vinegar, 3 tablespoons

sea salt and pepper to taste

Recipe

Pour the vinegar in bowl.  Slowly drizzle the olive in while whisking quickly.  Grind salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle over your favorite salad. Store leftovers in fridge for 1 week.
