Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing.

I got my first taste of this salad dressing when a dear friend brought it over with a meal she had made for my crew right after Nola was born. From the moment the heavenly concoction hit my lips, I wanted to drink it right out of it’s re-purposed glass bottle.

Since asking begging her for the recipe, I’ve probably made it weekly.

And I make it for everyone I know.  If I love you, I will bring you this dressing. It’s been proven.  I’ve made it for her, and for her, and I think her too.  I get email request for the recipe so much that I finally made it a google document that I share with every tom, dick and harry that ends in a .com.

So it’s time. Time to share it with the masses. It’s so good that it would be a sin to keep it from you for any longer than I already have.

What you will need:

2-3 garlic cloves, grated.

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1/2 tsp. ground pepper

1 tsp. sea salt

1/2 lemon, squeezed (I use this squeezer Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing.).

2 tablespoons tarragon wine vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Mash the salt n’ peppa!, grated garlic cloves, and mustard together with the back of a spoon.

Take a good ole’ shot of the heavenly mixture (go state!) (just kidding, don’t do shots of salad dressing, you freak):

And store it in a salad dressing shaker Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing., in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

You guys, I’ve just given you a gift. My husband says this is one of the only reasons he can eat “his greens” on a daily basis. I literally lick the bowl. No judging, please.

5368922310 ee8b9f3789 Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing.

Did I mention that you have to garnish the salad with copious amounts of freshly grated Parmesan cheese? Go ahead, get crazy with the cheese. Because it’s so good. You’re welcome.

  8. Leeeeeeeeeeeeove homemade salad dressing! I was just thinking I needed a new recipe and here it is! Thanks for sharing;-) PS: Do you ever add dried cherries to your greens? So delish! I also like to throw in some homemade sugar coated walnuts–just pop them in a pan on the stove (Med heat) with some sugar, stir til the sugar melts and you have gourmet in your own home kitchen.

    Emily Reply:

    oh yeah, Walnuts. I make them the same way, but add just a sprinkle of red pepper to the sugar. Trust me, so good.

  21. Crazy question – Can I run the garlic through a garlic press, or do I need to grate it with a traditional grater? Went out and bought the tarragon vinegar. I can NOT wait to make this stuff! :-)
    Thanks for sharing it!

    Bless you child! Truly you are doing the Lord’s work! Amazing dressing. I too licked the bowl, though I do this with any dressing I consider above average. Also, drinking straight dressing doesn’t make you a freak. It’s just a sign of total lack of restraint and human decency.

  24. awesome until the Michigan State Spartans cup… :)

  25. Sounds like the basic French-style salad dressing.

  26. I love homemade salad dressing! What a great way to perk up an ordinary salad!

    I also love that little Spartan shot glass! Yay, State!

  28. Absolutely love the fact that you have a spartan shot glass!!! GO GREEN! :D

    [Reply]

  29. I’ll have to make this dressing! It sounds much like my favorite chicken and vegetable sauce. If you like the salad dressing so much you might like to pour some of this on chicken sometime :D
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 tablespoons oil
    2 cloves garlic crushed
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon basil
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    This is the absolute best salad dressing I have ever had. I didn’t have the tarragon wine vinegar so I just used balsamic vinegar and added rosemary. I want to eat my body weight in salad just so I can eat more of this dressing. You are amazing!!!

    [Reply]

  32. Could be good, but then you put it in the State shotglass.

    I’m surprised you could take a picture of the salad in the split second before what came out of the container made everything wilt.

  33. Nice recipe. I’ll add it to my bookmarks.

  47. I made this a few months ago. I just had to come back to say – HOLY CRAP. I am obsessed. I eat it daily, tossed with arugula and kale. I NEVER wanted salad as a main meal before. But this… this is amazing and now I actually crave salad. Sometimes I get so excited thinking about it, I have to eat lunch at like 10:30am because I can’t wait til noon. (I should probably see someone about that…) But seriously, thank you for this recipe. It’s made me healthier because I now eat my greens daily!
