The best homemade vinaigrette salad dressing recipe

Our family has a Friday night tradition: pizza.

Along with our pizza we usually enjoy a big green salad with lots of great veggies and my favorite homemade dressing.  Once you experience homemade dressing going back to the store-bought bottle of “salad dressing” is not an option.

On this relaxing, celebratory Friday night of cheese pizza and a big salad, let’s make a jar of homemade dressing. This dressing can be stored in the fridge lasting at least a month.

  1. I went to Amazon to order the Eden white vinegar and it’s not listed. They are out of the Eden red vinegar and don’t know when or if they will carry it again. Any other options?

    1. Hey Barbara Ann, If you have a local natural food store, they will carry Eden brand. Another option is to pick up any bottle of red vinegar. Just read ingredients. As long as the ingredients are real (vinegar ;)), then it will work!

    1. Hey Candee, Unfortunately there isn’t a way to keep it from solidifying in the fridge. The good news is one characteristic of true olive oil is it will solidify when cold, the bad news is you need to run the jar under warm water each time you use the dressing and shake it once it’s a liquid.

      1. Hey Trey, Thanks for the recommendation. I believe Cisco is made from vegetable oil, which I wouldn’t recommend if you’re making a real food dressing. Avocado oil may be a real food alternative.

  2. I’m going to try your recipe. Where did you get the containers user in the pictures? They make a wonderful presentation!
