COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD

Italian Vinaigrette

Published in Recipes, Salads & Vegetables Author: CentraCare

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, halved
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

Directions

Place first 11 ingredients in a blender. Cover and process until pureed. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Note: Use a blender for best results. The paprika, onion powder and ground mustard coat the oil droplets, which prevent them from blending with the water, lemon juice, and vinegar. Shaking the ingredients in a jar results in droplets too big to prevent separation.

Yield: 1-1/2 cups or 12 servings (1 serving = 2 tablespoons)
