I love oil and vinegar dressing on my salad and my sandwiches. It is simple to make and tastes delicious. Although it oil and vinegar dressing contains more than just oil and vinegar, it is still easy to make and tastes really complex and delicious.
Many people use a 1 part vinegar to 2 part oil ratio when making theirs, I prefer to use a 1 part vinegar to 1 ½ parts oil. When making it my way, you get a much brighter flavor in my opinion. So when I mix mine up, I use ½ of vinegar or lemon juice and then ¾ cup of extra virgin olive oil.
¾ c. extra virgin olive oil
¼ c. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
Place all the ingredients together into a bottle and shake well. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Be sure to shake it well before each use.
I generally use red wine vinegar when I make it but you can also use apple cider vinegar or white vinegar if you prefer. I do not like mine with the white vinegar but you might. Making it with white vinegar makes it too tart for my liking.
When it comes to oil, you can use any neutral tasting oil but I prefer mine with olive oil. Any canola oil, vegetable oil or even coconut oil can be used.
