How do you make a vinaigrette?

Ingredients for a simple balsamic vinaigrette salad. Salad, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.

A vinagrette is a simple salad dressing made up of an acid like vinager or citrus juice with an oil like olive oil.

The basic recipe is very simple it’s one part acid and 3 parts oil.

You first add in your acid and any spices or flavorings, like salt and pepper. Then you slowly add in the oil while you whisk everything together.

This is my recipe for a simple weeknight balsamic salad vinaigrette.
