A simple salad dressing

Oregano Salad Dressing
Farm Journal’s Country Cookbook Copyright 1959, 1972

¾ c. vinegar
1 tblsp. salt
1 tblsp. sugar
1 tsp. oregano leaves
2 tsp. pepper
1 ½ tsp. sweet basil
2 cloves garlic, split
¾ c. salad oil

Combine all ingredients except oil. Let marinate overnight. Strain vinegar (I didn't do this.) and add oil. Shake vigorously.
Makes 1 ½ cups.

I just wanted a simple salad dressing and this fit the bill. I think it's important to mix up the vinegar mixture ahead of time. I didn't find it necessary to strain it - to be honest I missed that step. I served this over a simple iceberg salad mix with croutons. It rounded off an easy meal of frozen lasagne and garlic bread.

Another solid recipe from the Farm Journal's Country Cookbook.
