Canned Fruits
Whenever you open a can of fruit, instead of pouring the liquid/juice down the drain, save it in a salad dressing type container. Then add some balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and spices to your liking to make a delicious salad dressing.

I also use it for braising meat, such as pork or chicken, and it makes the meat so much more flavorful. The store bought fruit flavored salad dressing can run about $4. You can make your own for a fraction of that. Enjoy your own gourmet salad dressing!

Our basic salad dressing is evoo, dried oregano, garlic powder, red wine vinegar (homemade and easy, peasy), s & p. Sometimes, I pour the juice from green olive jars into it and it's wonderful.
Very close to mine, thanks for the tip will have to try the green olive juice. I am curing black olives as we speak, it is my first time.

You're welcome, and a little juice from a jar of pepperoncinis will spice it up.

Sounds good rosey.....thanks.

I usually save it, measure it, freeze it, label it and then put it in jello when I make it. Other than pineapple juice that is........

Use pineapple juice when I cook meat.

Mmm, I drink the juice too. If it's pineapple juice, I just use it for homemade stir fry.
