Vinaigrette for everything

Linda Lehman

By

We eat this simple dressing everynight on salad or veggies. It is easy to change up by adding differant spice combo's. As written, this has a nice flavor with a slight Greek influence.
Lemon juice makes this the perfect addition to any main meal salad adding to any protein addition such as meat or beans!
A little goes a long ways!
Cutting the oil back and using more of the acid creates a more flavorful dressing that is healthier and adds intense flavor. We don't use sugar but I do use Stevia or other replacement for Cole slaw or a sweeter based dressing such as French

Ingredients

1/4 c
vinegar, apple cider or red wine or any other favorite
1/4 c
oil, olive or canola
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 Tbsp
dried parsley
2 tsp
oregano, dried
2 tsp
garlic, dried
1 tsp
black pepper
1 tsp
dried dill weed
1 tsp
dried mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all in a jar, check seasoning. Pour over salad or veggies right before serving.
Excellant with chicken or tuna on a bed of greens!
2
For a creamy dressing, use 1/4 cup of the mix with 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt.
Add 2 T feta or blue cheese. Enough for 4 servings
3
For cole slaw dressing, use the creamy dressing with 1 T sugar or 1 tsp sugar substitue added and 1 T mustard seed. You can also add 2 T spicy brown prepared mustard for a tangy taste treat!
4
For a French style dressing, add 1-2 T of sugar or the equalivant of replacement sugar and 1/4 cup ketchup to 1/4 cup of the vinaegrette.
I don't add the dill or oregano if making this style.
5
For an awesome oriental flare,
use the oil and acid mix with 1 T hot mustard and than grate 2 T of ginger root and 3 cloves of garlic. Pout this over sliced meats, beef, chicken or fish arranged on a plate of salad greens. We served this in one of the finest hotels in the area back in the 80's!
