Vinaigrette is simple to prepare. It is best freshly made.
2 tablespoons wine vinegar 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper
Put the vinegar, salt and pepper into a jar. Shake to combine. Add the oil and shake until creamy.
Any wine vinegar will work – white, red, sherry, basalmic. Red wine vinegar is traditional.
The salt, pepper and any other seasoning should be dissolved in the vinegar first; they won’t completely blend in after adding the oil.
Turn this into an herb vinaigrette by adding minced fresh parsley, chives, thyme , tarragon, marjoram, or oregano. If not fresh, use a half teaspoon of dried.
