Gourmet Oil & Vinegar Salad Dressing


Serves/Makes:1 1/3 c.

  • 1 cup (225 ml) olive oil
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) balsamic or raspberry/wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). garlic powder (or more, to taste)
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) or 2 tsp (10 ml). dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml). coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 dash turmeric powder
  • Several dashes red/cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Couple dashes dried oregano leaves
  • Put olive oil in a jar, preferably with lid.
  • Add vinegar.
  • Add spices and herbs.
  • Shake or whisk well, until oil and vinegar emulsify.
  • Serve over or toss with salads.
Measurements are approximate. I just do it out of my head: I don't measure. You can adjust the vinegar to taste. Ditto the herbs and spices. And you can safely improvise (add or delete) items for subtle variation in flavor. I ALWAYS use olive oil (better for the body); but walnut oil, sesame oil, or flax oil are interesting and healthful substitutes. Play with the vinegars: there are so many different ones now in supermarkets. Rosemary garlic vinegar is great, for instance.
