Salad Dressing for all occasions

Hey there,

Dave usually writes the blogs, but I'm taking over to give you a cheat sheet on how to make sugar free salad dressings with our spices. 

I switch back and forth between U Wanna Pizza Me and Veg Geez Louise depending on the day and what kind of a taste I'm going for. I tend to lean towards the Italian dressings so Pizza is usually my go to.

Now this isn't an exact science, and I don't measure anything so you are going to have to make it to taste. A general rule of thumb regarding vinaigrette is a 2-1 or 3-1 ratio of oil to vinegar. So for example, 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar would whisk well together with 6 tablespoons (3oz) of olive oil...and that would be a good baseline. Season that dressing with a tablespoon or less of seasoning, add half of it at time and adjust to your taste. If you have an empty salad dressing bottle that's awesome, I just make my dressing in a bowl for a one time use. 

I mix extra virgin olive oil with red wine vinegar (or white vinegar) and a dash of water in a bowl. Less is more with the vinegar. I whisk in as much or as little Pizza seasoning as I want. It's as simple as that. Nothing crazy which is why I can do it! I've become so spoiled having Dave around that I cannot cook anymore, so our spices have definitely helped me get back into the cooking game.

Think about what you can put this over...

Your everyday salad

Tomato and mozzarella salad

Cucumber salad

Bread dip

Pretty much whatever you can think of! Enjoy.
