Ok here goes: I put homemade salad dressings in them! Novel I know. Blew you away. I have also become not just a fan of mason jars and their many uses,but of homemade salad dressing. Gosh it's a good thing. The newest salad dressing that has has me all in a tizzy is Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.
|The recipe on the right is this mexican meatball soup,made that this past weekend. You'll hear more about it,very soon.So break out your cookie scoop!|
Oh, what an awesome cookbook. We've known this for years,oh say at least 75 years. They have all kinds of recipes in this big ol' book,one of them being the recipe for my new favorite dressing.Honey Mustard Vinaigrette! And! it doesn't have to go on just salads,although I encourage eating darks greens. They are good for you and packed with all kinds of vitamins,mmm lets see vitamins A,C,K folate,iron and calcium. You dress those good-for-you greens up in this dressing and that salad looks real good right about now. But back to the dressing...
Now go find you some dark leafy greens and make you up a jar of this vinaigrette. You'll love it and your salad.
