Olive Oil and Red Wine Vinegar Salad Dressing

This flavorful olive oil and red wine vinegar salad dressing features cilantro and Italian seasoning for a fresh flavor, as well as lemon juice for a pleasant tang. You can reduce the amount of garlic if you are using large garlic cloves or leave it as three if you enjoy a strong garlic flavor. The hot sauce is optional but it does add a nice kick to some olive oil salad dressings, this one included.

Chill this dressing overnight for a smoother result. The reason why some olive oil salad dressings suggest overnight chilling is that it really gives the flavors time to blend and the result will be better-tasting. If you need this now and you do not have time to chill it at all, it will still taste good but you will notice how much smoother the taste of this olive oil and red wine vinegar salad dressing is after letting it sit overnight in the refrigerator.

Simple salad dressings like this complement all kinds of salads from the simplest bed of leaves to something with chicken, shrimp, fruit and nuts, grilled vegetables, or another elaborate preparation. It is well worth knowing how to make an olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing, just because it is so versatile and really does go with everything.
