I grew up eating salads with dressings made from scratch. The sound of the whisk beating the sides of the bowl was my version of the dinner bell. And, although I grew up eating it, it wasn’t until I started living on my own after college that I got my first dressing making lesson. view recipe
Lemon Vinaigrette is a homemade salad dressing that can’t get much simpler. This recipe takes just a tiny bit longer than it does to dig out a bottle of store bought dressing out of the refrigerator. Plus, it doesn’t have the excess sodium, sugar, preservatives, or artificial ingredients found in bottled dressing.
Balsamic Vinaigrette is a great, simple, and versatile dressing. Balsamic is a fairly sweet vinegar so it would be a good choice if you are not fond of tart salad dressings. This is my go-to salad dressing if I’m serving Italian style dishes such as homemade pizza, pasta with tomato sauce, or tomato and mozzarella panini.
