Classic Salad Dressing Recipe
I always enjoy working a salad into my weekday meal routine, whether its my hearty Apple Harvest Salad, or a quick on-the-go Summer Salad Jar. To me though, what really makes a salad stand out is the dressing. My go-to salad dressing is from a recipe that has been in my family for years.
This simple salad dressing is super light and flavorful, making it the ideal choice for any salad you choose to make. I found this one in my Grandmother’s recipe card collection that I inherited and I love how homemade salad dressing really is so easy and delicious.
Making salad dressing from scratch is almost as fast and easy as shaking up a store-bought bottle, and the taste is exponentially better than any thing you can buy at the store. My family recipes collection is something near and dear to my heart, and I love utilizing her made-from-scratch recipes whenever I can.
