00:00.000 --> 00:02.342
00:02.342 --> 00:05.280
We're making an easy, homemade salad
00:05.280 --> 00:07.320
I'm Kolom and you're watching Eating by
00:09.990 --> 00:12.490
We're going to do a sherry vinaigrette and
00:12.490 --> 00:15.320
easy, you'll never buy pre-made dressing
00:15.320 --> 00:16.850
We use a mason jar.
00:16.850 --> 00:19.640
We'll put some minced garlic in the jar.
00:21.720 --> 00:22.560
00:22.560 --> 00:28.000
You can use grainy mustard or Dijon
00:28.000 --> 00:29.030
00:29.030 --> 00:31.540
We're using a natural sweetener, so it's
00:32.900 --> 00:33.850
00:33.850 --> 00:38.680
Now sherry is a much more complex vinegar,
than say red vinegar or
00:38.680 --> 00:39.810
white wine vinegar.
00:39.810 --> 00:44.030
So if you're looking for a little bit more
depth of flavor sherry vinegar is great.
00:44.030 --> 00:45.600
I like using it in most of my dressings.
00:45.600 --> 00:50.310
Now you just mix that so that it's all one
00:50.310 --> 00:55.710
then I'm gonna add just a couple pinches
of sea salt and our heart healthy oil,
00:55.710 --> 00:58.530
our monounsaturated fat olive oil.
00:59.590 --> 01:05.910
And now all you have to do is put your lid
on, screw it on tight, and then shake it.
01:05.910 --> 01:08.450
And you get a beautifully emulsified
01:08.450 --> 01:11.720
which you can keep in your refrigerator
for five days at least.
01:11.720 --> 01:15.980
It has none of the added sodium or sugar
that you find in store bought dressings.
01:15.980 --> 01:16.860
And it was so simple.
01:18.210 --> 01:19.491
Look at that beautiful consistency.
01:19.491 --> 01:22.112
01:22.112 --> 01:23.700
01:23.700 --> 01:24.750
Can't beat a homemade dressing.
01:26.740 --> 01:29.060
Thanks for watching Eating by Heart, I'm
01:29.060 --> 01:29.622
See you again next time.
