Creating your own salad dressing not only is economical but also truly simple. I love the fact they’re so fresh tasting and versatile!

Vinaigrette is, at its heart, simply a balance of vinegar and oil. From there you may add shallots and fresh herbs for a classic take, blend in ripe berries as a bright addition, or add ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil for a bit of an Asian twist. The possibilities are virtually endless and you are only limited by your imagination
