Five Ingredient Flavor.
Not the flashiest picture, but it is the final product! I guess I was inspired from watching Food Network's Five Ingredient Fix this evening to whip up this oh so simple vinaigrette. Making your own salad dressings, especially vinaigrettes, (I don't think I can ever spell that right!) are cheap, simple, and of course delicious. They are also not full of preservatives or countless other ingredients that you can't pronounce or have the slightest idea of their purpose. It also leaves room for your creativity to show. Don't be afraid to think outside the bottle! (Oh, I'm hilarious!)
So, here is my recipe for a simple Cider Dijon Vinaigrette. Only five ingredients, not counting water since I consider it to be a "freebie" ingredient. Also, I didn't really measure when I made it, so these are approximations. It's really best to adjust to your own tastes, and experiment with different amounts and ingredients.
Cider Dijon Vinaigrette
3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
Dash of Kosher salt
Dash of Black Pepper
1/2 cup of water
Container for Storage
So not only are the ingredients simple, but so is the process. Simply add all the ingredients to the bowl and whisk until combined.
What's your favorite type of dressing?
