"How do you make that dressing?" I didn't give it much thought until my son asked. It seems simple — and it is — but it hadn't dawned on me to teach my kids to make a basic vinaigrette. Maybe because I never knew how until I met my French mother-in-law.
In my world, dressing came in a bottle from the grocery store. But doing it yourself is easier than driving to the store — and a lot cheaper. It had been years since I measured anything, so the next time I made it, I paid attention, wrote down the recipe, and put it on the fridge. Before I learned to make it, I started with a great cheat.
