Oil and Vinegar Dressing

The goodness of crisp salad ingredients comes through when topped with this simple homemade dressing. It tastes so fresh. Mom made it for our family when I was growing up, and now I serve it to my grandchildren. -Barbara Hyatt, Folsom, California

    Being the chef I am, I deleted the sugar to make it more healthy, substituted flaxseed oil for canola oil, fresh lemon and lime juice for vinegar, ground garlic for the cloves, and a teaspoon of red peppers. Magnifique!!!
