Everyone needs a few essential everyday recipes that they can easily whip up, and vinaigrette is surely one of them. This vinegar and oil-based dressing is light and tangy with just a hint of honey. The fresh basil and garlic give it a little more appeal than your basic salad dressing. It goes great on salad greens or as a marinade for grilled vegetables, chicken, tofu or fish.
