Versatile Vinaigrette

My YJ Recipes


versatile vinaigrette

This simple vinaigrette can launch dozens of delicious dressings.


Pinch of salt
Vinegar (or citrus juice)
Olive oil


1. Season one part vinegar (or fresh citrus juice) with a pinch of salt.

2. If using flavorings, add to the vinegar and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Whisk in three parts oil, and then adjust the balance of oil and vinegar to taste.

Tips: Start with the basics of oil, vinegar, and salt, and experiment with flavorings such as herbs, shallots, ginger, and chillies. Freshly made vinaigrette tastes best, so make enough for one salad at a time.
