My Special Cobb Salad Recipe

| 8/29/2019 7:17:00 PM

ReneeI always struggle with trying to figure out ways to use all my garden bounty. I’m a real estate agent and I wish I had time to can, pickle and preserve. I even wish I had time to beg, plead and cajole my husband into digging me a root cellar but, alas, he works at Tractor Supply and only has time for the essentials. Such is the life of a homesteader who hasn’t transitioned to making a living entirely from the homestead. As soon as I make my first million at real estate (laugh out loud) my goal is to retire and do all the canning, preserving and pickling that my heart desires. In the meantime, however, this salad is a great way to use fresh produce!

Grampa Artie’s Vinaigrette Ingredients

This is my go-to dressing; I never measure the ingredients in this recipe because I’ve made it for many years. I hope you feel emboldened to mix and match, taste and decide how you want yours to taste.

• 1 part vinegar (I personally love balsamic. It’s kind of sweet. I also love unpasteurized apple cider vinegar)
• 3 parts oil (I like extra virgin olive oil)
• 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
• 1/4 teaspoon dried onion flakes
• 2 teaspoons prepared mustard (can be yellow, Dijon or any kind you like)
• 1/2 teaspoon sugar (I’ve been using 5 drops of liquid stevia)
• Salt and pepper to taste
