I’m so happy I began this Challenge and chose this cookbook.
As it is now Springtime and we are enjoying more fresh salads I am excited to begin making homemade salad dressings. They are not something which I’ve typically made unless a special dressing was needed for a homemade salad and I certainly overlooked the simplicity and ease in putting these together.
My first recipe which I’ve made is a Vinaigrette Onion Salad Dressing.
This Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook’s many recipes has variations written to “change-up” the basic recipe and I chose to add fresh spring onion (Thanks, Dad!) to mine to turn the basic Vinaigrette dressing recipe into an Onion Vinaigrette.
Here are the ingredients which I used in my recipe. Not much to making it and I have everything in my home without having to purchase anything extra.
Because the recipes which I will be making are not my own but BHG’s and I don’t want to have any copyright violations I will provide a link in my blog post to the recipe on the BHG website, if available. I will provide the tweaks and variations which I did to their recipe here in my blog posts.
This Basic Vinaigrette recipe is at the following link: Basic Vinaigrette
I used olive oil, dried oregano and freshly ground black pepper for the seasonings but I did not use the mustard they suggested.
The various dressing recipes in the book mention that they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks so I only made half the recipe. We really enjoyed it though and there is still some left.
I made sure to mark the book with the date and my instructions on ingredients/substitutions which I used.
This one’s definitely a “keeper” and I will make it again!
