Go Go Gadget Tuesday

It has been a while since Gadget Tuesday.  I wanted to bring it back because there are so many fun kitchen/cooking gadgets out there (good and not so great).  This day, this gadget is one of the best.

I have made the most wonderful gadget discovery.  I was at my favorite stores, Bread Beckers. (The Becker family has a wonderful store of whole grains, natural foods, cookbooks, classes, on-line videos, and more.  Check out their web site – http://www.breadbeckers.com.)  As I was checking down each isle to see if there could possibly be something that I needed (ha, ha, there is always something I find that I need), this little number jumped out at me.
 It is a ‘Chef’ Salad Dressing Emulsifier.  
Why is this gadget so special?  Well, the first reason is, I am a salad lover.  I could eat some type of salad for lunch and dinner.  The second reason is, I love to make fresh dressings and vinaigrette.  This little gadget makes it fun and easy (oh, and in my opinion you need more than one).
All that is needed to create your own dressing is: 
1. Pour your ingredients into the bottle
2. Squeeze the trigger                           
The stir stick blends the ingredients automatically.
There are recipes on the side of the bottle. Score!

Other features are:
   *easy to use
   *It has a leak proof lid for storage
   *Dishwasher safe (easily to disassemble for cleaning and easily reassembled)
Lastly, I will leave you with my favorite dressing recipe (and of course happens to be on the side of the bottle).

Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

1/3 cup white vinegar
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic
salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a dressing bottle or small mason jar or if you have my favorite dressing emulsifier – shake, stir, or pull the bottle trigger.  You now have a great dressing and a happy salad.

Have a Wonderful Tuesday!
