Salad Dressings

I’m in the market for a fabulous new salad dressing container to store my homemade salad dressings.  So I pop on down to my local Target and look in the kitchen area.  I find the perfect bottle; not too big, not too small, and it’s just skinny enough to fit in my over-condimented fridge.  The only problem?  It has no lid.  None of them do.  Either they do not come with a seal for the top, or someone played a very mean prank and stole all the lids from the containers! I really felt like I was in a pickle since the salad dressings container had a bevvy of delicious recipes along the side, and who doesn’t want recipes at the ready?

Needless to say I bought a different container.  Not sealing a dressing seems like a quick route to disaster, but I thought I would share the recipes here, so we can all enjoy them. (Yeah, I took pictures like a weirdo while in Target so I could save the recipes.)

I ended up with this container, and while I am happy with it, it doesn’t have the assortment of recipes.  Only three.  But it has the fabulous swivel feature, which I think we can all appreciate how fun that makes salad.  *push whizz whizz*
