You have wonderful Organic vegetables that you got from the framer's market and as you fix your salad, you reach out to the dressing and it's the store bought version! Blah! :( Even though it is organic- it still should have some preservatives and if it claims- no preservatives, then maybe you should wonder- what's in it that keeps it "edible" thru all the shipping and shelf time. It's best to skip the store versions, particularly when it is so very easy to make your own- and since you can make it to your taste, it makes it even better. :)
Here's a quick recipe for home-made salad dressing: Take juice of one lime (for less tart taste, use lemon) in a small glass jar. Add equal quantity of good quality organic first press extra virgin olive oil. Screw on the lid and give it a good shake. Here is your salad base- now you can add herbs of your choice. For this example, I have added one-third tea spoon of Italian Herbs, a pinch of salt, a pinch of jaggery (Gud in Hindi, or you can use unbleached pure cane sugar) and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper to taste. Give it one more good shake and viola- your very own home-made Italian Herbs Salad Dressing is ready. Wasn't that easy? And the fact that you know what's in it, makes it that much more comforting!
It's best to make it fresh, though you can keep any unused portions in the refrigerator for a day or two.
