Although I have learned that salad can be wonderful dresses with some really good oil and the tiniest splash of vinegar, we are accustomed to fuller bodied salad dressings. I often resort to bottled ones cause the flavors are interesting, but I also make a balsamic vinaigrette which is probably an abomination to Italian cooking but the boys like it. It's basically "balsamic" vinegar (not the real stuff) evoo, crushed raw garlic, honey, and a touch of Dijon to hold it together. I make it on the sweeter side cause it makes my kids inhale salad and ask for seconds.
Our salads consist of at minimum greens and grape tomatoes, scallions, with other additions depending on what's on sale, usually a shredded mix like broccoli/carrot slaw.
I would like to have a couple other similar dressings on hand to mix things up. Does anyone else make batches of dressing that keep in the fridge for a while, sometimes I resort to the bottled store bought stuff but it's never that much better than my own. I store them in the plastic bears honey comes in, or in glass jars, in the fridge.
I'd love to hear if anyone does something like this and what works.
