Dressings are so quick and easy to make, I don't understand the ubiquity of the bottled versions. The only skill you need to master is adding the oil slowly enough to ensure a stable mixture. Worst case, even if it goes wrong and your oil and vinegar separate, you just have to shake the dressing vigorously directly before serving. It will still taste great!
