People are often shocked when they see how easy it is to make this homemade vinaigrette recipe. Feel free to experiment with the ingredients using these general ratios. Try swapping the garlic and white wine vinegar for shallots and champagne vinegar, for instance, or even ginger and rice wine vinegar. The jar serves as both shaker and storage container. No need for a bowl and a whisk — or store-bought salad dressing.

  • Had some fresh parsley and fresh oregano on hand, tossed that in…so good, so simple. Hubs always says “no” if I ask if he wants salad. Now I’ve learned to just make it and serve it. First bite, he’s nodding and smiling. See what a good vinaigrette can do?
