The biggest problem with home made salad dressing is that the vinegar separates from the oil very quickly. You have to be able to shake it well right before putting it on salad.
That’s why mason jars work the best for holding your homemade salad dressings! Screw the lid on firmly before you shake, then apply them to your salads.
Here’s a really simple balsamic vinaigrette recipe designed to be made in a mason jar.
