Salad Dressings

Once you've made your own salad dressings, there's no going back to the bottled, store-bought stuff. We've had two of my favorite salads lately and it's truly the dressing that makes them so divine.

The first is just your basic mixed greens, avocado, red onion, and craisens with a
 homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tsps dijon mustard
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of pepper

The second salad is a copy cat from my favorite place in Provo, Utah, Kneader's. Their turkey cranberry sunflower seed salad is to die for and I think we've about mastered it. Mixed greens, rotisserie turkey, mozzarella cheese, sunflower seeds, craisens, and red onion. But again, the dressing makes it! It's a  sweet poppyseed vinaigrette.

1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground mustard
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp poppyseeds
