Dressings and Vinaigrette's Guide

Making tasty dressings and vinaigrette's becomes easy once you get the base recipe right. The basic ratio is 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar (or an acid like lemon or lime juice). After this, the possibilities are endless. You can add fresh or dried herbs and spices, honey, mustard, miso paste, not to mention flavoured oils and vinegar's. You can make a thick dressing by adding some blended avocado, silken tofu, egg yolk or even mayonnaise.

Vinaigrette is an unstable emulsion and so no matter how thoroughly you mix it or how vigorously you shake it, it will separate within seconds. For a dressing that actually stays incorporated for longer, add one of these emulsifier: mayonnaise, mustard, honey or an egg yolk. The ratio for a more stable emulsion is: 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar to 1/2 part of emulsifier.

For an extra flavour bomb - substitute at least one part of the plain oil for a flavoured oil.

Tips for the perfect salad:

  • Use fresh salad leaves.
  • Match the dressing to the other ingredients - sweet, acidic, creamy and thick or mild and thin.
  • Wash and dry them thoroughly (otherwise the dressing will just run off them).
  • Dress just before serving.
  • Coat thoroughly.
  • Serve immediately.
