    what kind do you use? I usually make mine with olive oil, lemon juice and spices? wasn't sure if that is ok or not., or a base of stone ground mustard, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and spices?

    are those ok?

    thanks xoxox Darlene

    Ooh! I have a favorite that seems to work with everything (I love, love salads


    Extra virgin olive oil

    balsamic vinegar (make sure it says "of Modena")

    rice wine vinegar

    sea salt & pepper

    garlic powder

    onion powder


    whisk it all together in the bottom of the salad bowl first, to emulsify and adjust seasonings or oil/vinegar ratio, before adding salad ingredients and toss together.


    I also like to put some crumbled gorgonzola, marinated red onion (just in balsamic for at least 24 hours), chopped grapes, and toasted walnuts in every salad I make. It's such a treat.

    Forget dressing. Blue cheese crumbles, about 1.5 tbl will do 2-3 cups of greens. That's 50 calories, less than a 1/2 tbl of oil of any type.


    I used to drown my salads in dressings. I'm astounded at the flavors that pop out w/o all that crappyola on it.

    Has anyone here tried making mayonnaise?


    Warning. It's really good...and also a gateway drug for Aoli and Green Goddess dressing.


    Most excellent as a dip for sliced raw vegetables

    I've made mayonnaise and it does have a nice, rich flavor, much different from what you get at the store. It's fun to experiment with different kinds, too (ex. wasabi, sundried tomato, etc.).

    Darlene,


    The home-made mayo is as different from commercial, as fresh asparagus is from canned. Whole different animal.


    Commercial mayo is made with soybean oil, I think, and actually has some sugar and starch in it as well(I don't have a jar, so I can't check the label).


    Seems like it might be a little iffy, though.


    I think it's really fun to make, kind of a delicious exercise in Food Science. I'm going to make a Kalamata Aioli tomorrow for my boy and I. It's so good he will even eat raw broccoli just to be able to dip it :-D

    I wish I'd seen your link earlier kuno1chi, I would have made some. It's too late now and time for me to hit the sack. Tomorrow, may be.
