Dressing Up
By Amy Hunt

Why buy dressing when you can make your own? And it tastes so much better! After trying a few homemade dressings you'll never go back to store brought. (And have you ever noticed how many ingredients there are in most store bought dressings. Some of them I can't even pronounce.)

Dressed for Success
By: Carl Hanson

Getting your greens can seem like a pious mealtime obligation. But drizzling a delicious homemade dressing over salad makes it something to savor.


Vinaigrettes can be as basic as mixing together oil, vinegar and salt. From there, build flavor with herbs, spices, shallots and garlic. Play with oils and vinegars, too: olive, walnut, peanut or hazelnut oils; and balsamic, Champagne, and sherry vinegars or citrus juice.

Dreamy Creamy Dressings

Creamy dressings deliver a lush mouth-feel. From a base of sour cream, buttermilk, cream, yogurt or mayonnaise, creamy dressings are constructed with herbs, spices, shallots, and garlic. Cheese, pickles, chili sauce and other ingredients can add big flavor.

Dressing Up

Daring to range beyond what the name implies, salad dressings often make marvelous marinades and dipping sauces. Oil and vinegar dressings are popular for marinating meats, but don't overlook dairy-based dressings: the gentle acids in dairy tenderize meats slowly.

Raspberry Vinaigrette

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup raspberry wine vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, oregano, and pepper. Shake well.
