One thing I absolutely love homemade is vinaigrette. I don't think store bought varieties can ever compare! They're super simple, and there is an endless number of flavor combinations you can experiment with. I came up with a simple honey-dijon vinaigrette a few days ago, and it's a great replacement for the store bought honey dijon dressing we were buying.
Makes 1 1/4 cups, or 20-1 tablespoon servings
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup liquid honey
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pureed garlic
Pour the oil into a mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the vinegar. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk to combine. Cover and store in the refrigerator.
NOTE: You can use olive oil instead of the vinegar, but it can't be refrigerated, as the olive oil becomes solid in cold temperatures.
You can also adjust the tangy-ness by increasing or decreasing the amount of honey accordingly.
