Commercial salad dressings are nearly intolerable to me because they are most commonly made with soybean oil. Or perhaps "canola, olive oil and/or soybean oil". I've recently purchased a digestive enzyme which I'm hoping will help with soy but at the same time, I really just need to get back into making my own dressings again.
One of our favourites is a Greek dressing I found many years ago. It's that one recipe you keep taped in your cabinet. Literally.
|In the Ninja! I used fresh oregano for this batch.|
|I use Unico Red Wine Vinegar which always gives my dressings a darker sometimes pinky colour.|
Greek Salad Dressing
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1/3 red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano ( I used about 3 fresh oregano stems, leaves removed)*
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
I also added 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp of sugar to this batch.*
Place all ingredients in small jar and shake thoroughly. Chill before serving.
*Because I added fresh oregano and garlic, I blended everything up in my Ninja food blender. You could certainly press the garlic and chop the oregano by hand and then shake in a small jar.
