Why didn’t I think of that? – Salad Dressing Bottles

Write Sauce and Salad Dressing Recipes on Squeeze Bottles

For Easy Duplication

Hey Ks fans,

You know how you see things and then you smack your self on the head saying “why didn’t I think of that?” Well here is one of those things. The funny this is that since my restaurant days I use these plastic squeeze bottles all the time in my Home Kitchen. They come very in handy I find for all types of things in the kitchen.

Here are some of the ways I use squeeze bottles:

1. When buying huge bulk items from costco like olive oil and ketchup or mayo – I transfer them to smaller squeeze bottles so my kitchen fridge is not overwhelmed by these huge bottles. – Storing them instead in my garage fridge and refilling when needed.

2. So much easier to sautee when you use a squeeze bottle of olive oil- -leave it close to your stove – ready at hand when you need. Also gives much better portion control

3. When I want to dress a plate with a sauce that I have made  -these work great for those fun restaurant like design

4. Yes I use them also for my homemade salad dressings also – just never thought to write the recipe on the bottle! – brilliant!

You can easily get these inexpensive bottles prices range depending on size $1-$3 per container at restaurant supply store, cook ware  aisle in your grocery store, $1 stores and specialty cookware stores like sur la table (but they tend to be pricier in such a store)

Till next time!

Happy Cooking !


— If you’ve ever made a delicious salad dressing or dipping sauce one week only to try and fail making it again the following week, you know how tricky it can be to remember the perfect ratio of ingredients. By writing the ingredients and how much you should add on the side of a squeeze bottle, you’ll never have trouble recreating it again.

It’s frustrating to make a sauce or salad dressing great one time and terrible another. You may get close, but forgetting a crucial ingredient or adding too much of one thing or too little of another can throw the flavor off. To fix the problem, all you need are some simple white or clear squeeze bottles and a permanent marker.

Serious Eats suggest you measure everything out for the perfect sauce in a bowl first, and then add them to the bottle so you make sure you get the measurements right. Once it’s on the bottle – preferably in permanent marker – you’re all set, and others don’t have to depend on you to make the salad dressing anymore.
