I am looking for a oil and vinegar dressing just using garlic, sugar, s&p, spices I have searched the net for recipes and most of them have ingredients I don't keep in the house (lemon, honey, etc.) (I don't want to use ingredients I don't keep in the house) I need measurements because I have just recently been making my own dressing. When I use the packaged Good Seasons it is much tastier than what I have made.

Here's a good one:


1/3 c. olive oil
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

In small bowl with wire whisk or fork mix all ingredients. I use a small jar with cover and shake the ingredients.

RE: RECIPE: oil and vinegar dressing

If you make your own dressing, it would be worth while to buy some of the ingredients...
The basic Oil and vinegar dressing is 1/4 cup of something sour....vinegar of some sort or lemon juice or another citrus....and 1/2 cup of oil...I like olive oil...s and P to taste.
Some like sugar....some add mustard and some add herbs.
If you like good seasons, you must like a salty dressing with very little sugar....that right?
Any dressing will only be as good as the ingredients....good oil and a lovely champagne vinegar makes a good dressing.

Why not experiment? Make a small portion of the basic vinagrette, and add what you have on hand to see what you like.
Balsamic vinegar or rice vinegar adds a lovely flavor to oil and vinegar dressings, I think.
