Red Wine Vinaigrette

This simple dressing is such a great basic vinaigrette.  I use it on a number of salads and it always is such a wonderful compliment.  There are only a few ingredients, and it takes just a few minutes to prepare.  It is full flavor and so simple, you will wonder why you ever bought ready-made dressing before!

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp shallot, minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
pinch of sugar
1/4 C red wine vinegar
2/3 C extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Whisk to combine.
This recipe makes about 1 C.  It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
