I believe that the most important thing that you need to know about making fresh vinaigrette is the ratio between the two basic ingredients. They are:
3 parts of oil (I prefer extra virgin olive oil or avocado)
1 part of acid (I prefer fresh lemon juice or balsamic vinegar)
I will provide you with other options so you can make a salad dressing with the ingredients that you love.
Start with the following Basic Ingredients:
½ c. extra virgin olive oil (the oil, see oil list for your favorite as follows)
¼ c. vinegar of your choice (the acid, select from the acid list for your favorite as follows)
2 Crushed garlic (I love to add this)
Salt and pepper to-taste
NOW, SELECT YOUR FAVORITES FROM THE FOLLOWING LISTS:
ACID OPTIONS LIST (Remember, 1 part of this)
Lime or Lemon juice
White or Red Wine Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar
OILS OPTIONS LIST (Remember, 3 parts of this)
Any other vegetable oil
OTHER MIX-IN LIST, this depends on the flavor that you intent to accomplish; Italian??? Greek??? Extra sweet, Tangy??? Etc.
Dry Herbs like: basil, cilantro, parsley, thyme, oregano, etc.…
Brown sugar, parmesan cheese, honey, mustard, chopped shallots, etc.
Finally, all you need now is a Mason Jar with a lid, an electric hand mixer or a whisker to combine the ingredients that you selected. Mix it all well and refrigerate. Done! Enjoy!
