Add the dressing ingredients from one of the recipes below to the container, cover it, and give it a good shake. It's that easy!

    Homemade dressing is miles better than anything you can buy in a store. I either sprinkle a salad with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper or I make a dressing without measuring. I pour raw cider vinegar into a dressing bottle along with a dash of water, crushed garlic, dijon mustard, natural Worchestershire, kosher salt, pepper and some honey. I shake until combined then taste and adjust seasoning. Then I add EVOO, shake and refrigerate briefly  while I'm preparing the salad greens. You can vary the ingredients, too, but this is our favorite recipe by far.
