Use a Cocktail Shaker for a Perfectly Smooth Salad Dressing
If you have a cocktail shaker, you can get more out of it by also using it to make a delicious salad dressing . It is the perfect all-round container for mixing, pouring and storage, provided you don’t need it to prepare your drink right now.
A cocktail shaker like the Cobbler shaker with a lid and built-in filter top is a convenient way to quickly emulsify a dressing to keep it smooth and well mixed. The strainer catches lemon seeds or herb stalks and ensures an even pouring so you don’t have to change your salad dressing . If you have a shaker made from a non-reactive material (and almost all of them are), you can also use citrus or other acids in your dressing. You can also make a large batch of dressing to last for a week and use a shaker to mix and store for very easy access. When you’re ready to tuck the salad, you just need to take the shaker out of the fridge, shake it a couple of times, and pour.
