Sea Mist Russian River Valley 2009 Chardonnay to Make a Favorite Low Glycemic Salad Dressing and fun with Food Photography


Here's a great use of your wine as it gets past its time for drinking. Make a great salad dressing out of it with a mason jar. Mason Jars are well reputed for preserving foods and for drinking but they are really fantastic at making dressings too. This dressing used a Russian Red River Wine a little past its time but fantastic for making a dressing because its not too acidic (vinegary) and not completely wine either. Makes it smooth and delicious. It will be used on a thinly sliced cabbage and greens salad with herb roasted Dover sole soon.

For the recipe I am not gonna give you all the quantities. You will have to figure it out. I just went by instinct again without measuring.

Ingredients:

Sea Mist Russian River Valley 2009 Chardonnay (your favorite getting older wine or just whatever regular wine you have too)
Olive Oil (I like Trader Joe's Spanish Olive Oil. Its a little spicier with more taste)
Garlic Powder
Cumin
Oregano
Thyme
Vegetable Glycerin (its great because its low glycemic sweetner and diabetic friendly)
Fresh Crushed Black Pepper
Fresh Grated Ginger
Ground Himalayan Pink Salt

Add 1 Part of your wine to the jar. Add approximately 1/2 or 1/3 part of your olive oil. Add your all your ingredients to taste.

Seal your jar and let somebody shake it like mad. Your kids will love shaking it up!!

Sample with a chopstick or other kitchen device. Test to see if it needs to be sweeter or if you like it spicier etc..) Adjust as necessary.

Seal and keep in the fridge. You will love it and it will be better than those $6 or $8 dressings and healthier for you too. It only costs pennies!! Plus its your creation!!

Keep creating and have fun experimenting!!
