The Art of Salad Dressing

art of salad dressingHere’s the basic idea. Work with real food.

Remember this basic ratio: 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil.

That’s all you need to start making salad dressing.

Creative Options

  • Vinegar choices… balsamic, red wine, fruit vinegars
  • Oil choices… Olive oil, nut oils.  Or mash up an avocado, to add to your vinegar for a creamy dressing.
  • Garlic
  • Spices or herbs – try ones that you know you like.
  • Lemon juice
  • Blended nuts

Keep your ratio of 1 part vinegar (acid) to 3 parts oil, but that’s still not a rule.

If you create some excellent dressings, made from real food ingredients, write to me and let me know. I want to try!
