So far I’ve shared with you how to use vinegar in laundry, cleaning, washing windows, and even in cookies. But here’s another recipe that uses vinegar to make a delicious salad dressing. I got it from

Lisa’s Garlic Parmesan Italian Salad Dressing:

  • 1 c. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. dried basil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 Tbs. dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tbs. salt and pepper
  • 3 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar or sugar
  • 1 splash balsamic vinegar

Shake it all together and keep refrigerated. You’ll need to shake it before each use.

This is a great recipe, and I use it as my basic recipe, but I don’t follow it exactly. I usually grate some of the lemon peel in (figure I might as well use it!). I don’t have any basil right now, so that just gets skipped. I use white vinegar instead of red wine. And I don’t really measure the ingredients, I think I use way more than 2 Tbs. of Parmesan. =P

  1. Try blending it for a few minutes in the blender and it may not separate. That’s what I do with Italian Dressing.

  2. Laurie suggested what I was going to suggest. Actually, I got the idea from Laurie! Now I always do it! Thanks, Laurie!

  3. That sounds like a good idea! I never thought of it!

  4. Great recipe. I am making a few salad dressings to have a salad bar at my daughter’s birthday party next weekend. Glad I picked this as one of the dressings.
