How to Make The Perfect Vinaigrette

How to Make The Perfect Vinaigrette shows you exactly how to do just that!  A Vinaigrette has a pretty standard formula that honestly works every time.  It’s basically a ratio, which is 3 to 1:  3 parts oil and 1 part vinegar.  Use that formula as a basis…but you can be flexible, especially as you start to add more ingredients.

Here, you’ll see just how easy it is to make an incredible vinaigrette dressing…so easy, the Loon can do it…and does!   Here the Loon is making a wonderful Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, and Kris is making an incredible Asian Strawberry Vinaigrette.   Also included below is a link to our favorite Balsamic Vinaigrette.   They all are wonderful in their own way…and so easy to make!!  You’ll never buy the bottled stuff again!  100% Loon Approved!
