Tell-a-FriendVinaigrette

Posted in Glossary terms starting with "V"  

The classic vinaigrette or French dressing is a subtle mixture of good quality olive oil, wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. To this basic mixture is sometimes added mustard, fresh herbs or, as in southern France, garlic. Flavourings depend on taste and the types of salad the vinaigrette is to dress. Vinaigrette can also be used as a dressing for cooked, cooled vegetables. Serve vegetable vinaigrette as an hors d’oeuvre, or accompaniment to hot or cold meats.
