Instead of buying a big box of lettuce and getting through it I can just snip what I need for this meal. I’m kind of in love.
I do equal parts balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil (usually a small portion for me where I have left overs is 1/8 C of each) . Then I add a couple shakes of garlic salt and pepper flakes to taste. You can make as much or as little as you want just start with equal parts oil and vinegar.
Next I whisk it all together so it’s well combined and taste it. Sometimes I end up adding a little more salt or more balsamic or vinegar depending on how I feel that day. You can throw in any other herbs or lemon juice for a little change. But that’s the basic recipe with how I make it most of the time. I just throw the left overs into a container. Even better than that if you have a small jar just throw all the ingredients in that and shake like crazy (I couldn’t find my small jar this time).

I love your little garden! I am harvesting cucumbers right now, it is so amazing!
I should look into growing lettuce as my kale and chard are not doing so well!! Anyhow, try this: juice of 1 line and a little pulp, 3tbl honey, oil of choice and rice wine vinegar. I add a few seasonings and cyanne pepper. YUM!

I haven’t grown a garden in years since our subdivsion doesn’t really allow for gardens and we don’t have enough sun for one. I bet it’s fun gathering your own lettuce. I waste a lot from the store too. Thanks for sharing your dressing recipe at Your Cozy Home Party this week!
Very nice, please link it up with me today at Wow Us Wednesday. Following you on LF now:)
