I understand that in the essence of saving time, many people prefer to buy pre-made salad dressing…however..what’s in it? Better question..what shouldn’t be in it? It’s too easy to make your own. I usually double the recipe and store it in a jar to use later in the week.
The beauty of this dressing is that there is no oil..with that said.. you CAN and should add some if you need it. Oils and fats keep us feeling full longer. Go get em!
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 tspn freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tspn salt
1 garlic glove minced
1 Tbsn Dijon mustard
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Optional – tarragon or swap red wine vinegar with tarragon vinegar. 1/2 T extra virgin olive oil.
Combine all ingredients in a tight jar and shake well. The flavor gets stronger the day after you make it.
