So we couldn’t, in good conscience, only post sweets leading up to Christmas! Actually, we don’t really feel that badly about our coma-inducing barrage of goodies, but this two-part recipe is so festive, fun, and delicious that we couldn’t leave it out. It’s perfect for a fancy Christmas Eve dinner or a neighborhood potluck, a great accompaniment to a ham, or topped with grilled chicken breast for a meal at home with your family.
What is this magical mystery? It’s a yummy salad, sweet, savory, and crunchy, full of all sorts of amazing flavors that blend together perfectly. And a huge part of that is the dressing, which may just be my favorite salad dressing ever. Of all the dressings of all the world. Whether or not I make the whole salad, I love to keep this dressing whipped up in the refrigerator to use on everything. Like, say, a leaf of lettuce I tear off and dip in the dressing just so I don’t have to resort to licking the spoon. It’s that good. And the best part? I’m willing to bet if you don’t already have the ingredients in your cupboard, they’re on your shopping list.
In a blender, combine vinegar, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Place lid on blender and blend on high. While blender is running, add oil in a steady stream. Store in refrigerator for about 2-3 weeks. Shake well before serving.
