Red Wine Vinaigrette

red wine vinaigrette


I’ve been making the same Red Wine Vinaigrette for years, it’s inspired by my Gram Elsie’s salad dressing.

Gram had a little catering business when I was growing up, I helped her and my mom when I was really little. I think I was 13 when we no longer needed my mom 🙂  and we continued until I was in my early 20s. My Gram was an awesome cook! I think every memory of my Gram is cooking, working in her garden or shopping! (huh, wonder where I learned my hobbies from!?!?)

Gram Elsie passed away in March 2012 (just about a year ago) and I miss her dearly. I wish I could share this little blog with her… but to be totally honest – she didn’t like to share her recipes! She said you can give out a recipe but you always leave out one important ingredient so when they make it, it’s never as good as yours.. Needless to say I don’t follow her advice 🙂 I love to share my recipes with you!!

Gram made her dressing with an italian dressing packet mix, I recreated it with real food!

  • 1/2c Organic Olive Oil (click HERE to buy)
  • 1/2c Organic Red Wine Vinegar (Apple Cider Vinegar works great too!)
  • 1T Italian Herb Mix (click HERE to buy)
  • 1/2t Garlic Powder
  • 1/2t Onion Powder
  • 1/4t Sea Salt
  • 1/8t Black Pepper
  • 2t Organic Sugar or Honey

Combine everything together and mix well, serve with your favorite salad veggies!
