There is nothing better than homemade dressing, store bought dressing just doesn’t do it for me. Serve this over your favorite garden salad or dip your favorite veggies in it.
I slightly modified this recipe from my friend Susan’s blog Farmgirl Fare. I love her blog, she is a former California city chick turned Missouri farm girl, complete with chickens, sheep and donkeys! I often tell her how lucky she is to have her own farm fresh eggs and fresh produce, and she often tells me how lucky I am to live near a Trader Joe’s. You can easily halve this recipe and leftovers can be stored in the fridge for about 4-5 day. Enjoy!!
