Basic Herbed Salad Dressing

Basic Herbed Salad Dressing

A good salad requires a good homemade dressing.  Here is my recipe for a good Basic Herbed Salad Dressing.  If you’re not a garlic fan then feel free to just leave it out. 


1/4 Cup White Wine Vinegar or Red Wine Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

2 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard

2 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Basil

1 Finely Minced Garlic Clove

In a large size bowl whisk together all of the ingredients.  Let the dressing sit for an hour at room temperature.  Pour onto your favorite green salad, toss and serve.  Makes 1 serving.
