There is just something so pleasing about a salad dressing that uses fresh herbs! I've also tried using dried herbs in a pinch with this recipe and it's 'okay' so if you don't happen to have fresh on hand, you can indeed use 1 teaspoon dried instead of 1 tablespoon fresh of the oregano and basil.


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
  • 1 Tbsp fresh oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Whisk ingredients together until well blended.

I have used McCormick Pasta Salad Vinaigrette Dressing Blend for years to make pasta salad. When I ordered it last time I was told McCormick has stopped making it. I did not even get to save a package with a list of ingredients. If anyone has this info or a clone recipe I would appreciate it. It was so good. I sorely miss it. Thanks for your help.

This is tasty, quick and easy. A great salad dressing or marinade. Bon appetite!

Total Time: A few minutes

Yield: About 1 3/4 cups


  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp salt free seasoning mix such as Mrs. Dash or Bragg's
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a clean jar with a lid. Spaghetti sauce jars work great for this!

You would never guess there is no oil or added sweetener to this delicious vinaigrette. The pureed ripe pear gives off a creamy consistency and a sweet dimension.


It's so well rounded, you only need a few ingredients. If you prefer your dressing thinner, just add water and mix well.

I got this great recipe from one of the vendors at my local farmer's market as part of a kale salad recipe. I've made it to go with several different green salads and it's always a winner - so tangy and fresh!

This is a great way to use up extra cherry tomatoes. Combine cherry tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and Dijon mustard in a food processor and process until well blended.

There is no need to buy vinaigrette at the store. Make a fresh batch anytime you need to at home.

We prefer this using fresh mint, and toss it with mixed greens, crumbled feta, diced red onion, and walnuts. This vinaigrette is also good tossed with assorted vegetables and served as a cold salad.

Does anyone have a good Homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette recipe or know of a good brand to buy at the store?

Some one put this one up. Sounds good to me.

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. minced onion
  • 1 3/4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. poppy seeds

Mix the first 5 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add the oil in a steady stream with blender on a low speed and then on a high speed as the dressing thickens. Add the poppy seeds and pulse to mix just until the seeds are distributed. This dressing keeps, covered and refrigerated for 2 weeks. Makes 2 1/2 cups.

Personally, I really LOVE this one. It makes a nice, creamy dressing or a WONDERFUL chicken marinade.

I am looking for a recipe for a salad dressing. It is an oil and vinegar sweet dressing that I have only had served over a lettuce salad, with apples and walnuts in it.

This is my favorite sweet dressing.

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar

Combine all above in a jar with tight fitting lid, or old salad dressing bottle. Shake until sugar is dissolved. This is also very good with a teaspoon of dried Italian herbs, but perhaps not on a fruit salad.
