How to make a basic vinaigrette in a Mason jar (VIDEO)
Salad dressings can change with your mood. You might want one kind today and another kind tomorrow. Rather than buying a million different dressings, why not make your own with ingredients you already have? This way, if you change your mind about a dressing, you can quickly prepare another but still keep the nice, fresh dressing you created for when you're feeling it again.
One of the best salad dressings out there is a basic vinaigrette. It goes well with a wide range of salads and is super simple to make. This vinaigrette calls for only three main ingredients (vinegar, mustard and olive oil) plus a little salt and pepper, depending on your personal taste preferences. To make the vinaigrette, all you have to do is add the vinegar and mustard together in the Mason jar and shake those together until combined. After that, add the olive oil, and shake again until everything comes together as one. Add your desired amount of salt and pepper for taste, and then your very own homemade dressing is ready to go. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to several months, just in case you don't get to it right away.
The basic vinaigrette is just one example of a salad dressing you can make in a Mason jar. There are a ton more options, and depending on your preferences, there is definitely one for you. They last for different times and include a variety of ingredients, but they all have one thing in common: They're quick and easy to make, and the ingredients are typical items most people have at home. Give your salads what they really need with this homemade taste.
