Quick Tip #2: Easy Salad Dressing


Salad dressing can be whisked together in 2 minutes or less when you have good base ingredients. I am a huge fan of the vinaigrettes, & as you read in my previous blog  (10 Great Pantry Items), there are certain things you should always stock in your pantry. For salad dressings it is good to have oil, vinegar, sea salt, pepper, & some type of citrus juice. Get creative! Some really good vinegars I like to use are balsamic,  red wine & apple cider vinegar. For oils, it all depends on your ingredients. Extra virgin olive oil and sesame oil are what I use most. I always use about 2 parts oil and 1 part vinegar. Vinegar can have a lot of bite and balsamic specifically can really overpower the flavor of everything else you are eating. You really only need a splash of balsamic!

Ex: Making grilled salmon fillets? Mix sesame oil, rice vinegar & sesame seeds to drizzle over a bed of spinach and red onions with your salmon.
