Everyone needs a favorite back-pocket recipe for homemade dressing, not only because homemade tastes far better than store-bought, but also because many of the ingredients are likely already in your pantry — a great option when you can’t jump up and run to the store. This versatile Italian vinaigrette is wonderful as both a marinade and for topping all manner of salads.
1. Measure all ingredients into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously until well-blended and emulsified. Can also process in a food processor if desired.
2. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator; allow to come to room temperature and shake well before using.
