Quick and Easy Dressing

Take one of your empty wine bottles, fill it 2/3 full of best quality olive oil, add some salt, some pepper, some dry mustard, and some garlic powder. You can also add a few crushed dried herbs like oregano or basil. You can even just stuff a whole stem of fresh herbs into the bottle, but remember you are going to have to get it back out eventually. Fill remainder with Balsamic vinegar and shake.
