Basic Vinaigrette Recipe
Bottled salad dressings are often loaded with added sugar, and while they seem like a convenience, they are also one of the easiest things you can make at home, even for beginner cooks.
Place all ingredients in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously to emulsify ingredients. Alternatively, whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Can be kept in the refrigerator for several days; bring to room temperature before serving.
