Recipe Collection: Simple Salad Dressing

admin September 29, 2011

I’ve played with different salad dressing recipes over the last several months, and found many I liked.  This one is the easiest, though, because it has few ingredients, comes together quickly, and doesn’t need refrigeration.  It’s my go-to recipe when I need a salad dressing!


  • 2 cloves garlic, grated on a microplane (basically like pulp; or minced)
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 c. raw red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil


Add all ingredients to a glass container and shake well to combine.  Serve over any type of salad.  Makes 4 – 6 servings.

  1. This was lovely, I have always had a hard time getting them to taste just right but this was perfect and so easy….I used it on a greek style salad.


  2. I have been making this recipe for a few months now and my husband and 2 and 5 year olds love it! I love its so much healthier than store bought! I double the recipe and it almost fills a normal sized salad dressing bottle. I store it in the cupboard, not the fridge, it congealed when I put it in the fridge:)
