So simple. All you do is whisk all the ingredients together. Or be even more
lazy efficient and add everything to a jar, shake it, and store the leftover dressing right there in the jar.

For the best tasting dressing, I recommend storing leftovers in the refrigerator no longer than 1 week. However, I have totally kept it longer. Do as I say, not as I do.
