Meet the Sullivans: Simpler the Better

Simpler the Better

There is no better compliment to a fresh summer salad than homemade dressing. I have a few favorites I like to make often: The Best Salad Dressing is great on a Cobb and an "everything salad" (which is when you throw everything and anything you like into your salad) and Kevin's Healthy Caesar Dressing goes great along side a pasta dish.
When I make my own dressing I like to make enough to last us a few times, which then begs the questions of what is the best way to store the dressing?

We were given this Oil & Vinegar Pump Bottle from Crate & Barrel at our engagement party years ago. I used it a few times, but ended up tossing it (sorry, Kath!). It leaked and it was just too difficult to clean. Plus, it could only do oil and vinegar.
Well, that was over a year ago, and more recently I've been looking for a better solution to my how to conveniently store homemade salad dressing dilemma...and where do you go when you need something? That's right, Target!

Target did not disappoint! I found this Lifetime Brands Salad Shaker at Target for only $3.99. Such a steal! It's simple design is so easy to clean (just rinse and put it in the dishwasher) and it even has measurements and ingredients printed on the bottle for a few simple dressing recipes. 

Sometimes simple is just better.
