I want you to take about 10 minutes of your time to work with me. We are going to make your own salad dressing for this week. It will taste amazing, it will be fresh, natural with no preservatives and hey, you made it yourself! Let’s do this now!
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cost: Under $5.00
Render: ¾ cup
3/4 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 tsp. Salt (you can add more salt if you prefer)
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp. Spanish paprika
5 tbsp. parmesan cheese
1-2 med. size garlic cloves chopped (if your prefer less garlic flavor, just cut in half)
1 tbsp. capers
Chopped chives to taste
In a glass jar with lid, mix all the above listed ingredients. Shake real well to allow the ingredients to release the favors.
You will get an emulsion of all these ingredients, but they will separate again. Therefore, shake well before using all the time.
Refrigerate for at least 8 hour. (I usually make it the day before) Before using it let it rest on your counter top for up to15 minutes.
When ready to serve, shake it well again and you are done.
