Red Wine Vinaigrette Recipe

FoodFood for the Body
September 11, 2014 / By / , , , , , / Post a Comment

This is a super simple, healthy and VERSATILE salad dressing recipe.  I saw a salad dressing bottle in the grocery that said red wine and olive oil, and I decided to make my own.  (Did you know it’s much more cost effective to make your own dressings/dipping sauces?)

It’s tangy and the best bit is you only need a little to go a long way in however you decide to use it.  Just a dab ‘ll do ya. And it tastes like a Greek salad dressing.

Uses:  Well, there are many.  Too many to list; so here are a few suggestions.  I use it as a salad topper (see picture).  I top my quinoa-tomato-bleu cheese-spinach dish with a little bit of this, and I even top my cooked veggies and chicken with a little bit of this dressing.  I dip my meats in it.  It goes great with the richness of red meat.  Sold?  Mmmmhmmm.

It only requires two main ingredients:  red wine vinegar and olive oil, and the rest are spices.  Hope you enjoy!
