So Mike's been working late a few days a week and his job provides dinner. I get home with about 0% motivation to make dinner for one, so I end up going back to my favorite single person dinner of all time (which is actually pretty good for you)- burger and salad. Oh and some pretty flowers for myself- a very good splurge after a long day.
2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1 squirt dijon mustard (about a heaping teaspoon)
1/4 c. cider or white wine vinegar
1/2-3/4 c. olive oil (depending on how vinegary you like your dressing)
1 tsp. maple syrup, honey or agave nectar
a good pinch of salt
a few grinds of pepper
Now throw the cover on and shake the daylights out of it until its blended together. Mmmm. This makes me enough dressing for a few salads, which is why I make it in a jar. I can just pop it in the fridge when I'm done.
