Salad dressing comes in a plastic bottle in many circumstances. Sure, there are glass bottles, but they usually contain a long list of weird additives that you would probably never cook with yourself. (Ever wonder why it doesn’t solidify in the fridge or separate?) So instead of buying dressing, why not make it yourself? This is my favorite salad dressing (other than Catalina, which I don’t eat anymore). I also like homemade honey dijon dressing. Here are the ingredients I used:
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (or more if you like)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup olive oil
Boil the egg for one minute to kill any germs. Submerge in a bowl of cold water to stop cooking.
Juice the lemon and mince the garlic.
Combine the garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, egg and pepper in a measuring cup. Whisk well to combine.
While whisking, slowly pour in oil.
(Sorry for the blurriness there.) Pour the dressing into a glass jar, or even better an old salad dressing bottle. I had an old salad dressing bottle so I reused it for this purpose.
Enjoy! I like to use this dressing on cesar salad. I sprinkle grated pecorino romano on top and some homemade croutons.
