Vinaigrette: basic salad dressing

Vinaigrette is made by mixing an oil with something acidic like vinegar or lemon juice. Salt, herbs, and spices can be added as per taste and preference. The usual ratio of 3 parts of oil to 1 part of vinegar is used and whisked to form an emulsion.


Dry Mustard: 1/4 t, Fresh Ground Pepper: 1/8 t, Salt: 3/4 t, Vinegar: 3T, Chilli Powder: 1/2 t, Sugar: 1 t, Olive oil: 1 T


1. Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl or glass jar.

2. Whisk well or shake the jar thoroughly.

3. Use this emulsion to flavour your favourite salads or marinade vegetables.

The salad dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. Do not forget to shake it before use.
