Oil And Vinegar Salad Dressings

Oil and Vinegar Salad Dressing Recipe

The basil oil and vinegar salad dressing recipe is one which requires little introduction. This classic dressing has been around for many years because it is simple yet goes beautifully with pretty much any type of salad. Extra-virgin olive oil is the most popular option but if you do not enjoy the flavor of olive oil, you can use any other oil. Perhaps you would like to use an herb-infused oil or even a chili-infused oil for a little kick. Avocado oil, walnut oil and even canola oil also work well. As for the vinegar, you can use red wine, white wine or Champagne vinegar, balsamic vinegar, or another type of vinegar. Try cider vinegar for a fruity oil and vinegar salad dressing recipe, or rice vinegar if you are putting together an Asian salad.

Salad Dressing with Vinegar and Oil

As most of us remember from childhood science lessons, oil and vinegar do not mix. They are happy to combine briefly while you make, serve, and enjoy your salad but after a while the oil will rise to the top and the vinegar will sink to the bottom. An oil and vinegar salad dressing recipe is usually made with three parts of oil to one part of vinegar, but different vinegars have different strengths so you will need to taste the dressing and determine whether it tastes good or whether you need to add more oil or more vinegar. This is one of the most basic salad dressings to master though, because there is not much which can go wrong.
