Cannabis Vinaigrette – The Easiest, Healthiest, Way to Use Cannaoil

Are you looking for a quick and easy way to use your marijuana infused oil?  Look no further than cannabis vinaigrettes.

Why Make Your Own Cannabis Vinaigrettes?

  • Saves money -- the individual ingredients used to make dressing are much less expensive than a bottle of dressing.
  • Saves resources to make and recycle bottles, bottle caps, labeling and packaging.
  • Reduce your food carbon footprint by eliminating transportation from factory to market.
  • Use only the ingredients you want and get rid of the ones you don’t – eliminating high fructose corn syrup, preservatives and other non-natural additives.

If you’re anything like most of my friends and family members, you have at least three bottles of salad dressing in your fridge – possibly many more than that.  Entire aisles of super market real estate are devoted to displaying dizzying arrays of marinades, sauces, and salad dressings.  What a waste.  A waste of bottles, a waste of oil and energy to make the products and transport them to market, and a waste of unwanted calories and nutrients.  Commercial dressings and marinades are typically loaded with high fructose corn syrup, sodium, preservatives and other ingredients you don’t want or need.  Heck, you probably can’t even pronounce most of them.

Despite what the people who make all those bottles want you to think, there’s no great mystery to making fabulous tasting vinaigrettes for dressings or marinades at home.  If you have a food processor or mini food processor it takes no time at all to make even the most elaborate and tasty of vinaigrettes.  But even without these tools, a whisk and a little arm action also gets the job done.

At its most basic form, a vinaigrette is nothing more than a mixture of an oil with an acid – usually vinegar, sometimes citrus juices.  Most cookbooks recommend a basic formula of 1 part acid (or vinegar) to 3 parts oil.  If you have good organic salad ingredients, this basic formula and a little salt and pepper are all these ingredients need to really shine.

But vinaigrettes can be about so much more than just vinegar and oil – hence all those bottles crowding the supermarket   Think of them as a blank canvas that you can embellish in countless ways depending on the occasion, your mood, and what you happen to have on hand.  They can be subtle and delicate, or bold and spicy, or fruity, and every variation and combination in between you can imagine.
