To make hibiscus spritzers, first make a strong “tea” with magenta-red hibiscus flowers. Sweeten the tea with honey, just enough to soften the flower’s tangy sharpness. Pour a shot of the bright syrup over ice and top with fizzy water. Ta-da!

Homemade Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette — copycat salad dressing

Homemade Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette is an easy copycat version of a bottled salad dressing, one you buy from the store. Smoky roasted-pepper flavor and just the right amount of honey sweetness shine in both, but this one’s better—because it’s homemade, with love.

The best thing about making your own vinaigrette is you know exactly what’s in it. It blows my mind to see sugar in almost every bottled dressing on the shelf–Arrrgh‼ Homemade salad dressings rock, especially over tossed lettuce and veggie salads.
