The Most Delicious Vinaigrette


Simply put I have officially found my new favorite salad!

My friend, Jennifer, recently came back from a weekend at the cabin with some friends....we will skip over the fact that I wasn't invited...it's ok, I am clearly over it....and she was raving about this amazing salad a friend had made for one of their meals.  

As she started reeling off the list of ingredients my mouth started watering.  Everything she was listing was included in my top 5 favorite things to put on a salad.  I begged her to get the recipe so as soon as I got it I knew I had to make it.

Since that night I was planning on making a big pasta dinner I thought making an arugula salad topped with avocado, toasted almonds, pears, Gorgonzola and this delicious dressing would be the perfect compliment to a heavy entree!

Ashley Reed's Salad Dressing
1/3 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp white sugar
1 1/2 tsp prepared mustard (I actually used Dijon)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste
I used mixed arugula, pears, Gorgonzola cheese, avocado, and toasted almonds in the salad

Pin It!
