Homemade Zesty Italian Salad Dressing

As time goes on, I want to make my own concoctions so I know what is in it.  

Baked chicken and potatoes topped with italian salad dressing is one of my favorite ways to bake chicken.  Why not make it fresh?

Commercial salad dressing in a bottle is a convenience food and has its place in the kitchen for those who want the convenience.  

If you have the time, there is nothing like making your own kitchen concoctions that only has those ingredients you want in them.


1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 large clove of garlic – minced
2 TBSP finely chopped shallots
2 TBSP finely chopped red bell pepper
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Pinch of red pepper flakes


Place all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid
Shake until well combined and thickened.
