Homemade dressings are a great frugal way to enjoy healthy salads. Tiffany over at $5 Dinners thinks it’s pretty annoying to have to check recipes for measuring amounts. Take a look at an easy way to remember quick ratios for delicious salad dressings:

Vinaigrette Ratios: when making a simple vinaigrette, just remember to use 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. You can also think of using 1 tablespoon of oil to 1 teaspoon of vinegar. As far as oils go, you can use olive or vegetable oil, or red wine, white wine or balsamic vinegar. Try adding the following to your mixture:

  • Fresh or dried herbs like basil, tarragon, rosemary, etc.
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh garlic or garlic powder

You can use your imagination and taste buds when creating your dressings. The possibilities are endless and inexpensive! Head over to Homemade Salad Dressings with Ratios instead of Recipes for tips on how to make ranch style dressing and more.
