Garlic & Herb Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Homemade salad dressing is easy to make, affordable and you control the ingredients.

Have you read the labels of most store-bought dressing?  Their ingredients can be downright scary. So let’s do this.


  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tsp. dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. mayo
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar.
  2. Shake well to combine.
  3. Let sit for at least an hour before using; I prefer to let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Shake before using it.

The Perfect Salad Mix

Use equal parts of organic romaine and spinach cut up in bite-size pieces.  Slice up some strawberries and cucumbers, then sprinkle some pecans on your salad.  If you want to take it up a notch crumble some feta cheese on top.  We had it as a side salad, but it can be the featured entree for any meal.
