Homemade: Lemon Chive Dressing

I'm on a bit of a homemade binge right now so I thought I would grab some of the Salt Free Lemon Chive dressing seasoning that I received from a company called Backyard Patch and whip up some salad dressing.  The herbs from Backyard Patch are very inexpensive and even include a few recipes. 

In a mason jar, I combined 1.5 teaspoons of the spice mixture with 1/4 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil; I prefer extra virgin olive oil. 

Although it says on the package to let it set for an hour or so, my own experience tells me to let it set for a couple weeks to really bring out the flavor. We also make a Greek vinaigrette from scratch and although you can eat it within the hour, the flavor is much stronger and tangier if you prepare it a couple weeks in advance. All of these dressings and vinaigrette's have a pretty lengthy shelf life.
