This is another recipe idea, you can get creative and you really can’t go wrong as long as it tastes good to you. One great way to find out what works together is to open all your items and smell them together . Gather up your vinegar and olive oil and all your favorite spices. Fresh spices are best but use what you have and like. I have listed above what I use but this is how we like it, use what you like.

I start with 1 cup of vinegar and 2 cups of olive oil, put them in the blender, then just start adding what smells good together. I will share a tip, use twice as much as you think you would like. If one clove of garlic sounds good use two. Personally I use about 5 or 6. Your fresh herbs and spices should be chopped but it doesn’t have to be small, just small enough to blend. You can blend and add and blend and add, but make sure your final blend really whips it all together well. Then put it all in a large canning or honey jar, and let it sit on the counter for 24 hours then refrigerate. It is best after 1 week but we also often use it right away.

This is great as a marinade, a salad dressing, a meat sauce, a sandwich spread, drizzled over roasted veggies,  veggie or bread dip, and much more. I would love to hear what you add and how you use it!


  1. My family is small, so I just shake my vinaigrette dressing up in a bottle. I like in mine some mustard– a good squirt of a brown mustard, or a small spoon of a dijon-type. My husband hasn’t cared for the tang of the vinegar lately, so I’ve been adding a bit of mayo to make it creamier. I think your tip of having it sit on the counter overnight might help too.
