Master the Perfect Vinaigrette

The standard formula for salad dressing is a basic
ratio of 3:1—three parts oil to one part acid, plus salt
and pepper. You can play around with the ingredients,
adding sweetener, aromatics or emulsifiers.

NOT DRYING LEAVES

Dry leaves with a towel or
salad spinner; any water will
prevent dressing from adhering
to greens and dressing will
collect in the bottom of the
bowl, making for a limp salad.


Shop salad spinners >

NOT TOSSING SALAD

It’s worth it to hand-toss each
salad just before you eat it; this
ensures consistency in flavor
throughout. Add in dressing a
small amount at a time,
re-shaking just before each use,
to avoid over-dressing it.

NOT HITTING A RANGE OF
FLAVOR AND TEXTURE NOTES

A good salad will hit multiple
elements of taste (sweet, salty,
sour, bitter) as well as texture
(soft, creamy, crispy).
Use ingredients like citrus,
cruciferous greens and
avocados to achieve this.
