NOTE CONTAINS RAW EGG YOLK: Use caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks and the shell. To completely avoid risk use pasteurized eggs.
It is that easy to make!
You can store the salad dressing in a glass dressing bottle or just use a mason jar. You probably already have several in your cabinet.
If not, you can order one of these pint size mason jars and keep it in the fridge. I like this set because it comes with different sizes and labels.
This is perfect so that you can label the dressing and if you plan to make anything else. The smaller size is perfect to pop into meals you might be taking to others. We love to take a meal to new moms or someone recovering from surgery.

Enjoy this salad alone for a great meal or side dish. It is also delicious topped with Grilled Chicken.
