Homemade Salad Dressing in Three Minutes or Less

Yes, you can make your own homemade salad dressing in three minutes or less. There is no mystique, no technique that requires training, and no recipe that requires following. While the general rule for making Salad Dressing is three parts of oil to one part of vinegar, due to the varying acidic nature of vinegars and flavor of oils combined, many folks may try this combination and discouraged on the outcome believe that they just can’t get it right.

Fresh Salad with Homemade Salad Dressing

Perhaps you are one of these folks unsure on preparing your own Homemade Salad Dressing, or maybe you think there are too many ingredients to combine in making your own Salad Dressing during the busy week schedule and have come to believe that bottled dressing is much easier. Who thinks it tastes better? Besides only taking three minutes or less to combine and whisk together, making your own Homemade Salad Dressing is healthier for you, and it completely transforms the flavors blending together with various shapes and dimensions in the shades of greens, or leaves tipped in a darkish red tone mixed with any combination of assorted fresh vegetables. After all, the biggest part of the job in creating a beautiful fresh salad is choosing bright fresh lettuce bunches and vegetables at the market, washing the leaves and drying them carefully before tearing them gently into bite size pieces. Why not finish off your beautiful salad with the highlight it deserves, lightly tossing together your own Homemade Salad Dressing in 3 Minutes or Less.

To begin, using a regular everyday bowl out of your cabinet, just add in a pinch of sugar and four common spices; salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano and there you have your flavor selection of which you only need to add your vinegar and oils and whisk well. Although I have provided a recipe below, the idea is that you add your ingredients whisking together well and tasting, to get the achieved result that you like best, more tart, or more mellow.

As you get the knack of it you can then work with other ingredients to create your own mixture to transform the flavor to the occasion, some fresh squeezed lemon,  orange juice, a little mustard, the possibilities are many. One of my tasks for the Super Bowl Party at neighbors this evening is to make the Salad, and now with all of my fresh, multicolored healthy vegetables assembled together, in three minutes or less I will put together my fresh Homemade Salad Dressing in 3 Minutes or Less, Game Time. Hope you too will take a few minutes to adorn your well-made fresh greens salad with a healthier and more flavorful Homemade Salad Dressing too.

Taste. For a more mild flavor add a bit more oil, for tartness, add a bit more vinegar. Pour Dressing onto Salad a little at a time, tossing well in between (this will prevent you from over dressing the salad.) Pour remaining Dressing into a jar and refrigerate. Dressing will keep fresh for over a week.
