Does anyone have a good recipe to make homemade salad dressings using olive oil. I was told to cut back on my bad fats. Oh darn.

Not exactly 100% homemade but I use Good seasons Italian and instead of filling up to the "O" with oil, I use 3 Tablespoons EVOO and the rest water. Tastes the same : )

Allow me to hook you up with a couple of things here:
2 cloves fresh garlic
2 egg yolks
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp Lemon juice
6-8 tbsp olive oil
2 heads romaine lettuce
The easiest way is in t a food processor but you can accomplish this working by hand. Toss garlic and a handful of parmesan into the processor, turn it on and process until this is all ground to tiny bits. Add yolks, mustard and lemon juice. Process on pulse until it is well blended and sort of clumpy. Add salt, pepper (plenty) and turn the processor back on. Slowly add olive oil 1 tbsp at a time. Six is the minimum and adding more makes it thicker. Pour dressing over 2 heads of torn up romaine lettuce, one handful croutons and half a handful of parmesan cheese. Mix well and serve.
Add grilled chicken to make it a meal!
12 small fresh basil leaves (no dried stuff)
Wash the leaves and put them into a small bowl (not metal), add a splash of lemon juice, 1/3 cup of olive oil, tsp salt and fresh ground pepper. Let steep 20 minute to 48 hours (in the fridge if more than an hour). Pour over any fresh salad items you like.

Some Italian friends of mine make a huge green salad and put a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, black pepper, salt, and garlic on it. They add some olive oil last. If I make it I omit the salt. I rarely use it anyways and I'm trying to regulate my cholesterol, too.
