Dear Homemade Salad Dressing,
Your store-bought counterparts are beyond disappointing. Except for the Asian ginger Makoto dressing I will never figure out. But you are deliciously perfect with a hint of tangy mustard. Store bought ranch will never compare to your tart red wine vinegar and the way your components separate. Looks are deceiving. A homely jam jar containing a mysterious brownish liquid is far from appealing, but looks aren’t everything. You can cheer up even the saddest of iceberg lettuces. That’s what I love about you! Never change.

- ¼ cup plus 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
