Easy and delicious dressing. Salad-haters tell me that they will eat a whole bucket of salad as long as it has this dressing on it. I have also brushed this dressing onto homemade pizza dough (in lieu of tomato sauce) when I make pizza at home. Note: If you do not have any red wine vinegar you can substitute a tablespoon of red wine (any kind will do) with a splash of regular vinegar. (Not really a new idea; just an easy substitution!)
- Combine all ingredients in a small container and shake vigorously.
- Chill in refrigerator at least 1 hour prior to serving (Note: this is optional - you can use the dressing right away if you want to, but it usually tastes better if you let it sit for a while.) Let dressing return to room temperature before serving.
- For the actual salad I use baby salad greens, kalamata olives, tomatoes, thinly sliced red onions, and goat cheese.
- Prepare the salad/salad bowls with all of the greens, tomatoes, etc.; but wait to add the dressing until just before serving.
