Creamy Vinaigrette Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Cat Berner

I can't fully claim this recipe as my own since I found the original on Allrecipes. I did tweak it just a little based on my own preferences and what ingredients I had on hand. My husband, who I fear is going to turn into a bottle of Ranch dressing, loves this dressing almost as much. I use a microplane to grate the shallot and garlic, that way the dressing is nice and creamy without the need for a blender or food processor.

easy to make and great flavours. I made this in my blender and it came out great. The shallot was VERY strong but I'm thinking that it will mellow out over night.<br/><br/>update: I've made this many times and love it. For some reason the shallot and garlic amounts are too strong for me (which is strange because I love those) so I've adjusted both to small bits and then I add more to taste. I've also added poppy seeds to it which is DELICIOUS.

  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk until well combined. The flavor improves if you refrigerate for a while before using.
