Simple Vinaigrette For Salad

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
¼ cup Vinegar (balsamic, wine, tomato or cider)
1 teaspoon Herbs or herb blend (Italian, Herbes de Provence, French Sunshine, GreekBasil, Thyme…)
Garlic granules (if desired)
Salt and pepper to taste

Whisk oil and vinegar together to create an emulsion (so they don’t separate). Whisk in other ingredients. Sprinkle over salad and serve.

Want to add just a little more flavor to your salad? Instead of buying shake cheese, which is too easy to use in large quantities and does not have a lot of flavor, invest in a good fine grater (like a Microplane) and buy a chunk of Romano cheese to grate at the table. This actually results in less cheese being used and a more flavorful addition to the meal.
