Although my fridge is stocked with all sorts of sauces and condiments, the one thing you won't find is bottled salad dressing. Why? It's really easy to make a simple and delicious vinaigrette. It takes only a couple of minutes and is far healthier than anything processed.

Sometimes I'll throw in chopped herbs or a few tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese or a shallot instead of garlic, so feel free to make the recipe your own. To enjoy this tangy, garlicky dressing on a big bowl of mixed greens, read more.
