Making your own signature dressing is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Store-bought dressing is a thing of the past, besides who likes all those unnecessary preservatives in their salad dressing? This vinaigrette is so full of flavor that it'll be a top contender against Mama's famous homemade dressing. You can make a healthy and delicious dressing with just a few simple ingredients.  Grab a glass mason jar and get to shaking. Combine oil, lemon, and your flavor of choice (our favorite is tangy Dijon mustard). This refreshing dressing pairs perfectly with our tasty Crispy Chicken-and-Broccoli Salad and our highly-favored Kale and Sweet Potato with Chicken Salad. But this blend is certainly not limited to tossed salads, you'll be tempted to pour this simple vinaigrette on just about everything. Jazz up your field of greens by adding this dreamy homemade dressing to the mix.
