DIY Salad Dressing Basics

Most oil-based salad dressings start the same way:  2/3 oil, 1/3 apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.  Add a little salt and your choice of herbs (fresh or dried).  Shake or blend.  It's that simple!  

Here's my favorite combination:

2/3 olive oil

1/3 apple cider vinegar

1/2 t salt

2 T garlic powder (or a clove or two of fresh garlic)

2 t dried basil (or a small handful of chopped leaves)

Variations:  If you prefer a creamier dressing, add 1/2 avocado.  For an Asian twist, replace apple cider vinegar with rice vinegar and add 1/2 c tahini.  Blue cheese and chopped green onion are other delicious additions.  Be creative!
