Basic recipe is 2 parts oil to 1 part vinegar (play with ratio to see what you like, half and half is a popular ratio also). For example, to make a 1/4 cup Wordhouse Wow vinaigrette you would use 2 tbsp Olive Oil, 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, 1 tsp Wordhouse Wow and a pinch of salt. Whisk together and let sit for 5 minutes for the herbs to bloom. Simple and delicious!
Although vinaigrettes are technically a dressing, we generally think of more a creamy base for this. You can use the above chart for the basic combinations. Substitute the Oils for a Creamy base. You can use mayonnaise, buttermilk, yogurt or almond milk.
To make a great salad you need to please all your senses. You need leafy greens, veggies and fruits, and crunchy elements for texture. If you are making your salad a meal, you need protein.
So, of course, this table is a fraction of what you can use but it shows how to layer a great salad.
