Day 88: Salad Shooter

Christmas Eve had finally arrived and because I couldn't go home to South Carolina until Christmas Day, my friend Dayton invited me over to her house for Christmas Eve dinner. I accepted her invitation, and since she was cooking dinner, I offered to bring a salad.

I made Day 88's thing I've never done before make salad dressing from scratch.

I know, enough with the food already. But it was Christmas, and I was burnt out with all of the parties and shopping. I needed a blog break. And I needed something to take to Dayton's, so salad dressing it was. This is one of the first blog food challenges that did not require me going to the store. I actually used what I already had in my cupboards and refrigerator.

Garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, spicy mustard, some salt and sugar. Voila! I did it.

The salad and the dressing were a hit. Dayton and her family all raved about it, which made me feel good.

I have one more cooking challenge and then I'm done for a while. I promise. It's getting a little ridiculous with all of the food.

All of my blog chatter about not having knives to cut with scored me two in my stocking this Christmas, so Gift Gods if you're listening, I carried my beautiful salad, with my homemade dressing, over to Dayton's in a mixing bowl. Just saying...
