Amidst all our dinner, lunch, and dessert recipes, I like to share something purely practical every once in a while, like this salad dressing recipe from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. Blogger and nutritionist Ali comes up with so many fantastic and simple recipes, it makes eating healthily a breeze. Plus, store-bought salad dressing is expensive: it makes more sense to make your own.

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
the juice of one small lemon
6 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons fresh herbs
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It:
1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Taste and adjust salt and seasonings if necessary.
3. Store in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator.

Tips from Ali:
"I used 2 tablespoons of oregano here but fresh basil would work too, if fact, you could increase the basil to 1/4 cup. Don't be tempted to add more of the pungent herbs such as oregano or thyme. Otherwise the flavors in the dressing may get too strong and/or slightly bitter. This dressing will keep in the refrigerator in a sealed jar for about 2 weeks."

Do you have a great recipe to share? Let us know!
