Make the perfect vinaigrette

The amount of oil and vinegar to make a good vinaigrette is usually three parts oil to one part vinegar, salt and pepper.

This is the basic recipe, however, so that it is not always the same, look for options for the ingredients and create your combinations:

  • Use apple cider vinegar, sherry, wine, raspberry, etc. (just take a look at the wide variety in supermarkets).
  • Use a different type of vegetable oil each time (sunflower, olive, soy…).
  • Add a sprig of any fragrant herb: rosemary, chives, tarragon, or parsley.
  • Includes garlic, whole or crushed.
  • By experimenting, the time will come when you find that “special touch” you are looking for, with which you can personalize your salads.
