Per Missi's suggestion in her comment on my previous post, here's a quick recipe for our favorite salad dressing. Truth be told, I stole the recipe from my gourmet friend Sarah! Thank you, Sarah!
1/2 cup oil (olive when I have it around, canola or vegetable when I don't)
1/2 cup vinegar (white, cider, red wine, or rice wine vinegar -- whatever's available or suits my mood!)
1Tablespoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk or shake well.
I use this for chopped veggie salads -- cut up whatever veggies are in the fridge (carrots, cabbage, brocoli, cauliflower, zuchinni, green onions) and add dressing. Sometimes I add lentils or beans. Cilantro is always a great addition. Just use what you have! It works on lettuce too, of course! And also makes a good marinade/sauce for chicken.
Sorry there's no photo. Maybe later!
