Why make this dressing room

Making your own salad dressing isn’t difficult. In fact, it’s easy peasy!

When making your own, you control the ingredients and you can add your favorites or use what you have on hand. The cost of making your own dressing room is just a fraction of the price you’d pay for buying a jar of dressing room at the store.

Key ingredients

A fresh lemon next to garlic, thyme and a bottle of olive oil.
  • A fresh lemon – bottled lemon juice just doesn’t have the same taste
  • olive oil
  • white wine vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Dijon mustard
  • Fresh herbs – I use fresh thyme

Step by step directions

  • Place all ingredients into a jar with a lid
  • Shake vigorously until well mixed
