Homemade salad dressing is the key to happiness. And really its ridiculously easy to make so put the store-bought ranch down my friend, you will thank me later. This is my Mom’s recipe and almost every time she makes it, someone asks for the recipe. Yes, it is that good. So watch the video and have a salad party with yourself. Everyone loves a salad party.
I recently made a huge batch of it (i think 4x the recipe!) for my lil bro and his friends so they would survive the week (and maybe eat some greens) – little did I know he was whipping up grilled chicken and farro salad! But my point was that I made the vinaigrette in the blender… MIND. BLOWN. It literally took 30 seconds to make.
- 2 tbl dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- ¼ cup white wine vinegar
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- a few cloves of crushed garlic (optional)
- lots of salt and pepper
- ¾ cup olive oil
- Set a small bowl on top of a damp towel or something to hold the bowl in place.
- Whisk together the mustard, garlic and white wine vinegar, season generously with salt and pepper then while whisking (rather vigorously) drizzle the olive oil in a slow steady stream to emulsify the dressing.
- Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
