One of our favorite Italian salad dressings…perfect for a basic green salad.
No special equipment is needed to make this wonderful salad dressing.
We enjoy a tart vinaigrette that has a little more vinegar/lemon taste – you can reduce the lemon or vinegar or increase the olive oil if you prefer a vinaigrette that is less tart.
2 ½ tablespoons Red-Wine Vinegar
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 ½ teaspoons Dijon Mustard
½ teaspoon Salt
"Smidgen" of Cayenne Pepper
"Pinch" of White Pepper
½ teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Dill Weed
1 ½ tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 cup Olive Oil
Mix all ingredients well except the olive oil – if you have a salad dressing carafe use that and shake well. If you don’t have a carafe, use a bowl and whisk the ingredients together. Once the ingredients are mixed add the olive oil slowly and mix in shaking or whisking slowly until all is mixed in. Serve on a salad as desired.
