Is this your refrigerator? Full of fifty thousand salad dressings and the way food prices are going... a bottle of ranch dressing is almost five dollars. And there is one place that you can go that you can cut from your food budget by learning how to make dressings yourself. Today, we are going to a vinaigrette. Million different ways you can change it up depending on what's in season and what you have. So we are going to start with a clove of garlic. If you don't care for it then you can leave it out. I like garlic. I might even add two cloves. In a mixing bowl, crush your garlic and add it. Add a tablespoon of Dijon mustard. Add a 3 oz of white wine vinegar mixed with balsamic. Whisk it and add a teaspoon of sugar. Add a high quality of olive oil and start pouring it into your bowl at a steady stream. It will be all mixed together. Finally add oregano, thyme and flat leaf parsley. But first chop it up. It will make an excellent marinade and you won't need to buy all those bottles. Give it a test and enjoy.
