How To Make Homemade Vinaigrette
Homemade vinaigrette is a great healthy dressing for a salad. Usually anything you buy at the store has a lot of preservatives in it, so making it at home can be much healthier with less sodium. Most recipes call for 1 to 3 parts vinegar to oil. I don’t like it that oily, so my recipe calls for equal parts of each. The best thing to do is add little of each at a time to get the consistency you want.
4 oz. olive oil
4 oz. red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic (minced) (optional)
1/8 teaspoon (or a pinch) crushed red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoons cracked black pepper
Sugar to taste (pinch) (optional)
1. In a small bowl whisk together oil and vinegar until emulsified.
2. Add garlic and whisk together.
3. Add red and black pepper and whisk.
4. Taste and add sugar if too bitter.
5. Serve on a salad with tomatoes, red onion and cheese; also great for marinades.
