#WCW What's Cookin' Wednesday; Make your own salad dressing!

This week’s post is inspired by my own desire to stop buying salad dressings! Spring and summer is when I love to make nice big salads, chocked full of different leafy greens and veggies! Throw some sliced chicken breast on top and you’ve got a healthy meal. BUT…when you slather your salad with bottled salad dressing that has high fructose corn syrup, yellow dye #5, and 14 other ingredients that you can’t pronounce…you’ve ruined that healthy salad!! 

This recipe is soooo easy to make. It’s a classic Balsamic Vinaigrette. Goes with practically any salad out there! No sugar and no artificial anything! You can even use this as a marinade for meats, or drizzle a little on top of some roasted veggies! 

Make on a Sunday and use all week long Balsamic Vinaigrette
·         3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
·         1 crushed clove of garlic (I had minced garlic in my fridge-I crushed a cloves worth and it was just fine!)
·         1 tsp dried oregano
·         2 tsp Dijon mustard
·         3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
·         Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Put all the ingredients in a jar that has a lid. Close the lid tight and shake well to combine all the ingredients. How much easier can ya get!?
