Why pay $4.00 for a bottle of vinaigrette when you can make your own for way less super fast! It's really easy. To pair with summer greens, a simple vinaigrette works best to bring out the fresh crisp flavors.
Find a jar with a lid. Mix together oil and vinegar in approximately a 1:1 ratio.
Here instead of vinegar I used freshly squeezed lemon juice for added freshness.
Use a strainer to keep the seeds out of the dressing.
Mix to emulsify the two together.
Here you have your basic base. To this you can add anything you want. I usually add a sweetener to balance the flavor of the vinegar or citrus juice and mustard to give it a little body.
Here I used my homemade pomegranate jelly and a small amount of honey mustard. Shake it again, and your dressing is all ready to go.
