Pantry/freezer challenge 2017: salad dressings
I rarely purchase salad dressing, but a few do end up in the pantry. Case in point: this bottle of Olive Garden restaurant vinaigrette. I know that I bought it with a large/doubled coupon. I normally just mix up my own vinaigrettes. Lots of salads have been eaten as of late, so it became time to replenish the dressings. This morning found me first refilling the small, glass bottle for red wine vinegar from the large, gallon sized bottle of the same that I store in the pantry, alongside the gallons of cider vinegar and white vinegar. I mixed up a cruet of vinaigrette and grabbed this OG vinaigrette off of the pantry shelf.
Next, I decided to mix up a batch of Penzey's creamy peppercorn dressing, using some l/o sour cream from Christmas and mayonnaise to do so. I received the dressing mix as a freebie from Penzey's.
