Betcha can’t guess

June 21-22, 2021

Some things are worth repeating. Back in 2010 I wrote a post about my favorite salad and dressing. It still is, and since the vinaigrette is all about proportions, I decided to create a memory patch in its honor …

June 21, 2021 – Trellis vinaigrette

Since there were just two of us and I didn’t need leftovers, I squeezed just half a lemon. Counting that as one part, I added one part apple cider vinegar, three parts safflower oil and a generous dollop of Grey Poupon Dijon mustard, all chased by a three finger pinch of salt. And per Marti’s comment below, a squirt of agave nectar is also a good addition.


And since I am a grandmother of boys, I have come to know the Under Armor logo on sight. Better yet, it was spotted not just at the dino park …

but also at Urban Air …

P.S. I also love that it reminds me of the St Louis Gateway Arch.

  1. Wow you DO know that Under Armor logo!! Yay for Brave Jace…on two fronts: not letting the words of another stop him and pushing through when scared. Well done!


    1. I have to admit that it took me a while to “get” the UA logo … and yeah, good on Jace for sticking with it (much helped, I’m sure, by the good example of his big brother)


  2. If you ever forget the recipe – the perfect reminder! Visual reminders can sometimes work better than lists. I think as kids grow you get attuned to all the subtle shifts in fashion and ‘cool’ – this one will probably last a while tho!


  3. Sometimes I add a tsp of honey to a very similar salad dressing…and sometimes all I want on salad is sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil plus some picked garden herbs.

    Good for Jace, facing fear and a bully, is uplifting and I bet he felt terrific afterwards!


    1. Thanks for the reminder Marti! I had quite forgotten that I like to add a bit of agave nectar, so I’ve updated the post accordingly.

      I’ve also been known to squeeze a bit of lemon juice along with olive oil and sea salt on a simple arugula salad.
