Tired of the dressing you usually make? Are you always short of time and think your only option is to go for a store bought dressing for your vegetables?
Traditionally, vinaigrette is made with the ratio of 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. As every teaspoon of fat (aka oil) gives you ~50 kcals, many individuals have adjusted the ratio to 2 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. Because I like tangy things, I reverse the ratio and do 2 parts vinegar to 1 part oil.
Many individuals ask what does 1 part mean? 1 part is any form of measurement you use (e.g. 1 teaspoon, 1 tablespoon, a measuring cup, etc). Whatever you use to measure your oil, do the same for your vinegar so you know exactly what 1 part is.
Don’t be afraid to make extra dressing for the next time you plan to eat your salad. Dressing can keep for a good chunk of time.
