So far I’ve shared with you how to use vinegar in laundry, cleaning, washing windows, and even in cookies. But here’s another recipe that uses vinegar to make a delicious salad dressing. I got it from bigoven.com.
Lisa’s Garlic Parmesan Italian Salad Dressing:
1 c. olive oil
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbs. dried basil
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 Tbs. dried oregano
1/2 Tbs. salt and pepper
3 Tbs. red wine vinegar
2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. agave nectar or sugar
1 splash balsamic vinegar
Shake it all together and keep refrigerated. You’ll need to shake it before each use.
This is a great recipe, and I use it as my basic recipe, but I don’t follow it exactly. I usually grate some of the lemon peel in (figure I might as well use it!). I don’t have any basil right now, so that just gets skipped. I use white vinegar instead of red wine. And I don’t really measure the ingredients, I think I use way more than 2 Tbs. of Parmesan. =P
