For someone who eats salad on the daily, it’s nice to know making your own dressing is much easier than it seems. Why buy expensive, store-bought varieties (packed with weird, mysterious ingredients) when you can make your own salad dressing that’s just as tasty, if not more? Add this fresh ‘n’ crisp red wine vinaigrette to all your salads throughout the week! Remember: a little bit goes a long way!
