Holy Schamoly- I saw there was a new comment in this thread, opened the thread, and it took me to the comment that was new to me.   That hasn't happened since what, mid-October?

Hasn't happened to me yet, but I noticed over the weekend at home I didn't have to keep signing in.  It kept me signed in all weekend.  Progress?

I really hate to mention anything at all because it seems like every time I do, it starts messing up again... but... I have been going to the "new to me" post in most threads for at least a month or two... EXCEPT the BABBLE thread... Also, did not have to sign in here at work today.... YAY!

I make my own and it depends on what salad I am eating which dressing I am using.  For me dressing is just one part of the ingredients to make  a salad  fantastic or boring.

I use one tablespoon of oil to two tablespoons of vinegar - whisk together.

I use this one. I mix it with oil, vinegar, water and the packet. They have a garlic one I add apple cider vinegar to. It's yummy!

Like Sandy, I use a 1 to 2 ratio of olive oil to vinegar. Usually just pour it into a little storage bowl, put the lid on and shake. I love fresh mozarella perlini on my salads, and some sunflower seeds or nuts of some kind. Need that crunch!

When Jeff and I were in the mountains I ordered vinegar and oil dressing for my salad.   I got a cruet of olive oil and 3 cruets of vinegars to choose from.   I have seen that done before but never had to self mix.   I guess I did well since I have emulated it at home a few times since.   I'll pre-mix next time and see if I can tell a difference.

Cara topped with a basil infused olive oil and a nice aged balsamic vinegar?

I'm not a huge basil fan - I do like the citrus infused olive oils - we have Blood Orange, Meyer Lemon right now. I think we have some Pomegranate, too, but that is not my favorite. I really like the white balsamic we get from Figone's for salads. As far as regular balsamic, I generally like the Kirkland brand from Costco best - we have had all kinds of fancy ones, but I like the flavor of the Costco one better.
