I was able to pick lettuce tonight for our dinner salad. This is the first lettuce of the year. What a treat. Perfect time for Easy Homemade Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.
You can see I had more than enough for a large salad. It is so rewarding to pick your veggies from your own yard. I don't have any ripe tomatoes yet though and the cucumbers are still just small vines. Soon though, the whole salad will be from the garden.
I almost always make my own dressing. Really a vinaigrette. I like to control the sodium and other ingredients. It is so simple and even my kids prefer homemade to bottled.
I don't measure. It is just splashes and dashes of olive oil, some type of vinegar like red wine, rice wine or apple cider, sea salt, Mrs. Dash and Italian seasonings and salt and pepper to taste,
