10 Easy-to-Make Foods to Stop Buying at the Store
As far as DIY food prep goes, salad dressing tops the list for being easy and tasting infinitely better than the store-bought version. Shake together olive oil with an acid such as a vinegar or citrus juice, along with a little salt and pepper. To take it up a notch, add an emulsifier such as mustard or honey to keep the dressing from separating. The possibilities are infinite -- yogurt or tahini instead of oil or the addition of garlic, herbs, spices, anchovies, and so on. For a little more than the cost of store-bought salad dressing, purchase the Kolder Salad Dressing Bottle ($6 on Amazon) with ingredient quantities printed on the side.
