Making your own dressing is super easy and allows you to control the ingredients. This is a basic vinaigrette recipe that can be used to add flavor to green and grain salads. Make a big batch of dressing and store it in your fridge in an airtight container for adding to salads all week long.
We love using olive oil in salad dressings because it is a great source of monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E.
