This looks really easy. I must admit though, I am not a big fan of olive oil, strangely I don't like the taste. I do have a few vinegars sitting in the cupboard not being used so will have to try this. Thanks.
Becky, you can make salad dressing w/ pretty much any oil in a liquid state.........use an oil that you like.
Becky, you might want to look for an olive oil with a very mild taste. They do vary. I wouldn't use canola, soybean oil, or corn oil instead of olive oil. These are very unhealthy oils for many reasons - let's start with the fact that all 3 are made from genetically modified plants.If it's just a matter of not being used to the taste, you might try using half of those unhealthy oils (that I just suggested you shouldn't use :) ) and half olive oil, and gradually increase the olive.
I've made my own vinegar and oil dressing quite a few times, but not faithfully. You have some great add-in ideas. My guys really go for the Ranch or Ceasar dressings. I need to seek out some easy recipes for those, too.
Great post! I am trying to get better at this...I need to keep the recipes handy until I have them committed to memory!
I usually use some combination of mayonnaise (the kind made without soy) and raw yogurt, plus vinegar and spices to make a creamy dressing, or a little organic ketchup for 1000-Island. Janet

So true Ruth. I especially love the list of ingredients you suggested to make changes and keep the variety that store bought dressings offer. It just goes to show how really simple it is!
What would you recommend for a replacement for caesar dressing? I love Ken's Steak House Lite Caesar but I want to get away from all processed foods.
