  1. I’ve never made salad dressing from scratch, but this is now my go-to Italian dressing recipe! I do the half olive oil/half canola oil method, and also use a little red wine vinegar or rice vinegar along with the apple cider vinegar. Fresh basil also makes this really great.

  2. @thomasplace I take my comment back. I had it in a salad and it was excellent. I think the next time I make it, I may try a lighter olive oil and instead of onion, I may mince/grate some shallots. Favorited.
