“Shake & Serve” Dressing

Easy to make at the last minute, this “Shake & Serve” dressing is ready in minutes and offers a nice break from commercial dressing + it's made in a pint jar so clean up is minimal.
The mustard in this recipe helps to emulsify the olive oil and vinegar, just a little sugar balances the blend, and pepper flakes and black pepper add some zing!

“Shake & Serve” Dressing
6 tablespoons good olive oil (such as Tasteful Olive’s EVOO)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a pint jar, mix the oil, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place the lid on the jar and shake well to mix.
Variation: Instead of red pepper flakes, add a teaspoon of Italian blend seasoning

  2. Thanks for this, and for showcasing our terrific, healthy, fresh olive oil in this recipe! Such an easy recipe ... we suggest a mild or medium intensity EVOO for lovely tasting notes that blend and balance well with the red wine vinegar (we have one year Barrel Aged Red in the store) and the Dijon! www.thetastefulolive.com.

  3. Sounds good Jeanne! We'll have to check out the Dijon next time we are in KC.
