My Nana makes this salad dressing and it’s damn good. I mean so good that if she was feeling nice enough to make me a bottle for Christmas, it would be the score of the season. Fancy electronics, nope, I don’t need those. New running shoes, I’d even pass those up. Yes, it’s that special. And everyone in my family will agree that a bottle of this is like liquid gold. Now, when I was younger the idea of making it myself seemed like blasphemy but as I’ve learned my way around the kitchen, I have almost mastered that art of her dressing. I say almost because no one can duplicate the hands of age. Everything tastes better when made by someone you love. Now, this is a simple recipe but oh so delicious and you will find that all salads will taste better once you bring this to your table. You can leave this on your counter for as long as you feel alright using it, for me, it’s like month if I make a lot. It only gets better with age, helps all the flavors meld. Please note, me putting this recipe on the internet is like giving you all a key to the city. Don’t take it for granted. The great Oz will be angry if you don’t do it justice.
NANA’s FAMOUS SALAD DRESSING
2 cups of olive oil (Not extra virgin, use good quality olive oil, none of this store-brand shit)
1.5 cups of red wine vinegar
4-6 cloves of garlic depending on your personal taste, mince it FINE.
1.5 tablespoons dried oregano, yes I said dried
1 tablespoon anchovy paste (Don’t roll your eyes, you won’t even taste it)
1 teaspoon of salt (add more if you want it)
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Throw it all in a bottle and mix it up really well.
No blending it people, I don’t know why some genius thought of that idea.
Pour it on your salad liberally.
