Ingredients

    2 Cups Canola Oil
    1 Cup Olive Oil
    1 Cup Vinegar
    4 Cloves Garlic, crushed
    5 tsp Dijon Mustard
    Salt and Pepper to taste

    Optional additions are endless but here are some suggestions:

    Chives
    Parsley
    Cilantro
    Thyme
    Green Onions

    Grated Parmesan or Asiago
    Crumbled Goat Cheese
    Crumbled Feta Cheese
    Crumbled Bleu Cheese

    Capers
    Pimientos
    Olives

    Lemon Juice
    Lime Juice
    Lemon Zest
    Lime Zest

Directions

Makes 1 Quart and lasts a long time in the refrigerator.
1 TBS = 1 Serving I only need about 2 tsp on my salad. I always have vinegar at the table to add if I wish.

I keep this in refrigerator, take out enough for the evening and add herbs and spices to go along with the meal.

This is just a base recipe. Use less oil for less fat intake and recalculate.

Can substitute wine vinegar with vinegar of your choice.

Remove from refrigerator about 30 min before serving and shake well before using. I take out a little for the night and add whatever herbs & spices that go with my meal. The rest goes back into the refrigerator.

This also makes a good marinade base.
