vinaigrette 101

Keep these helpful tips in mind to mix an even better vinaigrette.• The classic vinaigrette ratio is 3 parts oil to 1 part acid (such as vinegar or lemon juice), but we prefer a 3 to 2 ratio so there is more of an acidic punch.• Use a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid so you can prepare and store in the same vessel.• Double your recipe so you have leftovers. Vinaigrettes make excellent marinades as well.• Don’t be afraid to add a touch of something creamy like mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, or tahini. It will give your vinaigrette more body and coat the lettuce better.• A dash of Dijon mustard ALWAYS makes a vinaigrette better.• Customize your vinaigrette with fresh citrus zest or juice, shallot, a touch of garlic,…
