Why buy dressing when you can make your own?! It’s so easy and SO much better for you! You actually know every single ingredient in the dressing. The garlic paste in a tube is my secret weapon. I use it when I want the garlic flavor but not chunks of garlic (or quite frankly when I’m too lazy to chop garlic). It has a VERY strong flavor so you don’t need much. You can find it in the refrigerated section at any grocery store. This dressing is full of flavor and will make you and your salads very happy!
Red Wine Vinaigrette –makes 1 cup
2 Tbsp lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp grainy mustard
1/2 tsp garlic paste (or 1 clove garlic minced)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
Combine all ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake until combined. A little goes a long way flavor wise. You’ll never buy dressing again!
