Simple Salad Dressing Recipe

Simple salad dressing

Hello blog family. In today’s post I’m sharing my simple salad dressing recipe with you. I no longer buy salad dressing to use at home; ever since learning how to make my own from cooking school. I tried different variations using different ingredients such as honey, brown sugar, hot pepper, apple cider vinegar, orange juice, fresh herbs like basil, scent leaf, parsley etc

However today’s recipe is my most basic. I use it on my lazy days or when I’m not craving anything extraordinary. It goes really well with Mixed Greens and my signature Cucumber Apple Salad but you can use it with almost any salad combo you prefer.

So without much yapping, here’s my recipe.
