Vinaigrette Dressing

Cravings

It can’t get any easier than vinaigrette dressing for a salad, but I recently read a few pointers (frenchandparfait.com) to make it better.

The basic recipe:

  • 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (mix until dissolved), then add…
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper, mix then add…
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp at a time and mix

Here are the tips:

  • Vinegar to oil is always a 1 to 3 ratio
  • Use a wooden spoon (no metal)
  • The order you mix your ingredients is important. Mix as listed above

Variations:

  • Start with a minced shallot, then add the vinegar, salt, etc. as listed above
  • Add 1 tsp Dijon Mustard after the black pepper, before the oil
