How to make Oil and Vinegar Dressing
Quite simply, whisk all the ingredients together. Combine the sugar, salt oil, and vinegar in a jar and shake until fully incorporated. Make sure the lid is on tight!
What kind of oil and vinegar should I use?
I prefer olive oil because I typically have it on hand, and I like how it tastes. However, canola or vegetable oil would work great as well.
In terms of vinegar, I tried this recipe first with distilled vinegar. It was super tart. It was good on the salad, but I decided I liked that flavor better after making it with apple cider vinegar. You can also use wine vinegar as well.
How long can oil and vinegar dressing be stored in the refrigerator?
I store mine for months in the refrigerator with no problems. That is if it lasts that long!
