The canning jar may look crude; and the picture does not do justice to the contents.........but, Amanda has perfected a salad dressing so delicious, so fresh and so delightful that I have to rave about it.
Lets face it. A salad dressing can make or break a salad.
If it is a good dressing it will compliment and enhance the salad giving your palate a completeness of flavor your taste buds appreciate.
A bad salad dressing leaves you longing for a glass of water, your toothbrush and something else to satisfy your taste buds.
Amanda's dressing is full-bodied but not over powering. It compliments a simple lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad perfectly allowing the crisp crunch of lettuce, cucumber and the sweet refreshing taste of the tomato remain the primary taste.
The flavor of the dressing is easily able to blend and enhance the heavier flavors of blue cheese, bacon, onions, egg and spinach for a more hardy salad.
Simple ingredients are key: EVOO, Balsamic Vinegar, fresh garlic, fresh parsley, Italian herbs, Onion powder, spicy brown mustard, Del Monte Sweet Pickle Relish and grated fresh Parmesan cheese........combine, shake and chill.
