Garlicky Dressing


A good, flavorful vinaigrette like this really ties together the ingredients in a grain bowl. And, of course, it’s delicious on a salad! This recipe makes a lot of dressing, which is great because then you’ll have some on hand whenever you want it.

  • 1⁄2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3⁄4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Put all the ingredients in the bowl.

Don’t love oregano? Try basil, dill, marjoram, or thyme instead.
