Today for Thrifty Thursday I want to share with you my favorite salad dressing recipe. I created this vinaigrette a few years ago when I began the THM eating plan. I wish I could tell you that I was currently completely following this eating plan, but I am just dabbling in it. Life has been a bit hectic lately so I haven't sat down to figure it all out again. Anyway, I created my basic lemon vinaigrette a few years ago and have been working on getting it right since then. I feel like I finally have it where I want it and it is ready to share with you. Most of the ingredients can be purchased at the regular grocery store. I tend to buy my spices in bulk from a bulk food store near where I live, but they can be purchased at the regular store too. There is one "specialty" ingredient and I will provide a link for it and the substitution for it.
Cassandra's Tangy Lemon Vinaigrette
1/4 Cup of Lemon Juice (fresh or bottled)
1 tsp. Fire Cider - if you don't have this or can't find it, you can use Apple Cider Vinegar instead.
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
To Taste: (I start with a pinch of each first and then add more as needed)
2. Add in Fire Cider.
3. Add in spices, a pinch of each first and then I add more to taste as needed.
5. Taste to check spice level and adjust as needed.
What is your favorite salad dressing? Do you make your own? I hope you enjoy my vinaigrette recipe as much as I do.
