I make some mean salad dressing.  Really, I do.  No kidding.    

Here – have one of my recipes, on da house:

  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  •  2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire Sauce
  • Juice of ½ Lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Mix together all the above ingredients.

Now here’s where it gets dicey – add olive oil and vinegar—until it hits the right consistency/flavor for you.

You want to make an emulsion—so whisk it and taste as you go.

Then just pour it over your salad – or dump it on the weeds in your front yard.  Except leave out everything but the vinegar.  It’s much cheaper that way.

That’s right.  Vinegar is a great weed killer.  Both cider and white vinegar contain acetic acid which attacks the leaves of a plant, but not the root.  Go after the weeds when they’re young, because their root systems are not developed enough to fight off the acidic attack.  As such, they will not have enough energy to re-grow the leaves.

You can use this method of weed killing multiple times in the same area.  Each time vinegar is applied, the weed will expend energy to fight it off—until it runs out of energy and dies.

I like this method.  Vinegar is cheap—and non-toxic.  And tastes damn good in a salad.

I love multi-taskers.

    I also knew from my friend that vinegar is also good for the hair. In fact, she use this every week.
