How to make Oil and Vinegar Dressing
Quite simply, mix 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. 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 after making it with apple cider vinegar I decided I liked the flavor of that better. You can also use a wine vinegar as well.
How long will oil and vinegar dressing store in the refrigerator?
I store mine for months in the refrigerator with no problems. That is, if it lasts that long!
