OMG Salad Dressing

I can only take so much of this. Why is it that any time someone does a recipe for salad dressing, they have WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much oil? It should be an even 1:1 ratio of oil to vinegar, and THEN you throw in whatever else you want. Grrr...

"¼ cups Red Wine Vinegar
1-¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil"

^ this was in my inbox, as it's the most recent recipe on the Tasty Kitchen blog. There is no where's near enough vinegar. It makes me sad, and it makes me want to rescue people from their tragic lack of vinegar. My recipe for salad dressing?

Let's say 1/4 c. flavored vinegar (I particularly like Spiced Fig Vinegar), 1/4 c. olive oil (sometimes I have infused olive oil), 2 tsp. tasty mustard, oregano, salt, and tons of pepper. Shake it up and you're done! And for the love of the gods, don't put too much oil!

EDIT: Even P-Dub's most recent recipe involves waaaaaay too little vinegar! :-(


  1. All right, my American friend, could you please explain the 'dub' part of p-dub to me? You and my other PioneerWoman-fan pal both use this little referral, and for the life of me, I can't work out what it means. Culture barrier much? Damn, yes!

    So tell?

  2. As in "Double-U" or "W". I had a US history prof who referred to George Washington as G-Dub.
