Below you will find a roundup of all the recipes and videos from my summer project, Stupid Good Summer School! Looking for the perfect way to cook bacon? I’ve got the video right here! Perhaps you’d like a way to use up diced onions? Let’s check out this recipe. I’m working on a few new projects for the Fall but until then, check out some of my attempts at videos. If you have any suggestions for next year’s potential Summer School, leave your ideas in the comments below!
Have you ever looked on the back of a store-bought salad dressing bottle? Sodium. Fat. Sodium. Calories. Not real ingredients that come from the ground. You can save a bunch of money and a bunch of fake chemicals by making your own dressing. This recipe would typically call for diced shallots, but that’s a fancy onion variety that is expensive so red onions work in a similar way. Try your own salad dressing varieties with different acids like lime juice or vinegars! Also, you can sub the olive oil for vegetable or canola oils but I wouldn’t really recommend it. Check out the video for how to make salad dressing here.
Red Onion Vinaigrette
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Combine all ingredients in a small bottle or mason jar.
- Let stand for 5 minutes, to let the harsh bite of the onion mellow out a bit.
- Cover and shake the bottle right before pouring over fresh greens. Enjoy!
Thanks for a great Stupid Good Summer School! This is the last week in the series, but look out Summer 2015.
