Fundamentals: VINAIGRETTE

This vinaigrette is a building block for any number of dishes you would like to create. You can add pesto, asian style peanut sauce, ginger & tamari- any flavor you're seeking for the salad du jour. 

The basic ratio is 2 oil to 1 acid and enough dijon to emulsify the dressing.

1/3c Acid: apple cider vinegar, balsamic, lemon juice, lime juice.....

2/3c Oil: olive oil, avocado oil

1T Dijon Mustard

From this base, taste and add more oil or acid as needed. You can add zest (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit) to brighten the flavor, honey to bring everything together (or a scoop of fruit preserves!), fresh herbs, salt/pepper, and so on.

Enjoy the summer vegetable bounty!
