Hubby and I have been trying to eat for less and a little healthier - which means making supper at home and from scratch most of the time. I wanted to find a good recipe for salad dressing and this is what I found courtesy allrecipes.com -
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar or lemon juice
2 tablespoons dijon mustard or mayonnaise
1 large garlic clove, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup olive oil
Measure vinegar (or lemon juice) and mustard (or mayonnaise) into a 2-cup measuring cup. With small whisk, stir in garlic, a big pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Measure oil in another cup. Slowly whisk oil into mixture, first in droplets, then in a slow, steady stream to make an emulsifies vinaigrette.
I goofed up the first time I made it and used RED WINE vinegar instead of the rice wine vinegar, but we really liked it! I made our second batch and was going to use the rice wine vinegar, but hubby wanted me to make it the same as the first time. It gives it a little "kick".
You do need to let it sit in the refrigerator for a while before you use, so if you want it for supper, make it the night before or that morning. It will only last a few days, then starts to separate.
I've used it on salads and also on toasted sandwiches (like Subway) that I make at home.
