Don’t Throw That Out!
We’ve all been there. You’re down to the last little bit in a jar of mustard, jam, peanut butter, or whatever. You can’t really scrape any more out. There’s not enough to make your next sandwich with. But you don’t have to throw that last little bit out.
One of the best things to do with that last little bit stuff is to make a quick dressing. The easiest way to do that is to make a vinaigrette in the bottle. Add one-part vinegar and three parts oil to the jar (e.g. 1 teaspoon vinegar and 3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) vegetable oil), and shake vigorously. A peanut butter vinaigrette will be delicious on an Asian salad. Mustard vinaigrette is great on most tossed salads.
Feeling adventurous? Switch up the type of vinegar and/or oil. Walnut oil adds a wonderful flavor to vinaigrettes. Balsamic vinegar adds an amazing sweetness. The number of combinations is nearly endless.
