My Favorite Easy Salad Dressing

Have you ever made your own salad dressing? Don't be afraid, I do all the time. It is super easy and really flavorful. It will keep in the fridge for a couple days, usually I can get at least 2 salads out of a batch.
You will need,
6 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp, red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
Put all ingredients into a jar or container with a tight lid. Shake well until all combined.

That is it! Your own salad dressing.
Here is what I put in this salad,
Mixed baby greens
Sliced Cucumber
Chopped Tomato
Toasted Pine Nuts (love them!)
Dried Cranberries
Grated Parmesan Cheese
You go ahead and put whatever floats your boat in it. This dressing tastes good on everything, especially spinach salads loaded with fresh strawberries and goat cheese, maybe a few toasted almonds or pecans! YUM!
So if you have never tried to make your own salad dressing, I challenge you to give it a try! You may never go back to the Kraft stuff again!
