Never underestimate the power of a dressing to transform the most simplistic of salads into something memorable. I have been unwavering with my family and friends to throw away bottled salad dressings. Take a few minutes and make something real. So, if you are willing to step-out and make a great salad dressing, here is a recipe for you. Takes only a few minutes and you will never look back.
This dressing serves beautifully with a simple wedge salad, blue cheese and crumbled bacon. Finish it off with a few good cracks of black pepper and only good things will happen. This dressing also makes for a beautiful dip to serve with fresh cut vegetables.
