    Wow dinner looks fabulous! I do make my own salad dressing always. I usually just use some good evoo and a splash of vinegar, but sometimes I’ll make a vinaigrette.

    I’m getting The Social Network tomorrow from Netflix – I’m sooo excited to see it!

      I want to try making my own dressing more often. I’m scouring the internet for dressing recipes now. πŸ™‚

      The Social Network made me want to quit Facebook honestly…but I won’t. I’d lose touch with friends and family. πŸ™

    That dinner does look yummy. I don’t make my own dressings, but one day I will. I had to comment on your mug…very cute.

      Hummustard? That sounds interesting! And you put it on a salad?

    Always. Way way way too easy not to make yourself. No preservatives or weird stuff, only tastiness!

    I nearly always make a variant on a classic vinaigrette: two parts extra-virgin olive oil, one part vinegar, dollop of mustard, pinch of kosher salt, a few grinds of black pepper, small minced garlic clove. Whisk everything but the oil together, then whisk the oil in slowly. Mustard is the emulsifier.

    I use balsamic vinegar, sherry vinegar, cider vinegar, white wine vinegar, rice vinegar…….. Occasionally we have some really special fruit vinegar from a company that sells at the PSU farmers’ market… I often add fresh herbs or dried thyme/oregano. Depends on my mood.

    On the subject of raw egg: my take is that the amount of raw cookie dough I’ve put in my mouth in the last 25+ years hasn’t killed me yet, so…. Also, if you’re using organic eggs from humanely raised chickens the risk of salmonella is WAY lower. For reals. πŸ˜‰

      Hahaha! No kidding! I’ve eaten so much raw cookie dough in my life and nothing EVER happened.

      We make a simple vinaigrette. Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and some herbs.
