When you think of salad dressing, your first thought is probably about something that is bought in a grocery store. I always bought mine there, and if there wasn’t any at home, I would genuinely skip the salad. What a waste!

Thanks to Pinterest, I have become a little obsessed with all things French, the lifestyle, the fashion, and of course the clothes. I came across a great cooking tip (or mixing tip?) for salad dressing. It is so simple and easy I am sad that i didn’t come across it sooner. The simplicity of oil, vinegar and some salt is magical.
