I write for HubPages and recently put together an article with a few recipes for homemade salad dressings. The back story is that I grew up with bottled dressings. It wasn't until I met my future husband that I found out you can make salad dressing from scratch really easily! For him it was never a question - his parents are 100% Italian, and well, they didn't sell bottled salad dressing on the rural farms of Naples. It all started with a few shakes of extra virgin olive oil and some vinegar - usually a combination of red wine, balsamic and apple cider vinegars. I've gotten braver in recent years and have moved to complex dressings when the mood strikes and the ingredients are handy. Read more about them here on HubPages.
