I know that sounds hyperbolic but take it from someone who thinks salad is anathema in the cold months. And here in Pittsburgh, that would be 3/4 of the year — in this tropical girl’s definition of “cold”.
Hence, while I love vegetables, this ditty from The Simpsons has been my anthem for years.
Until my stepmama-in-law, friend and all around beautiful woman, Tina Shannon, introduced me to this salad dressing. Its one of the best uses of herbs this side of California and Colorado. You know you have that marjoram you bought a while back for that one recipe. And tarragon, wow, we use it almost as stingily as we use saffron, that thing is potent – there’s a thin sprinkle in between “French” and “tastes like earth.” So if you make this your house dressing and have it on hand all season long, those bottles will finally see some rotation in your spice rack.
