I was once called upon to make a vinaigrette for asparagus. But the cupboard was almost bare, with the only suitable ingredients found being olive oil infused with lemon and "Balsamico Bianco di Modena", a white balsamic vinegar. Well, with the help of a little Dijon mustard the vinaigrette turned out exceptionally tasty and this set me thinking: "is this the basis of the perfect vinaigrette?". Over the intervening period I've varied the ingredients and their relative proportions and I have now settled on a vinaigrette that meets my requirements of fine taste with a little added extra.
The two major variations on a standard vinaigrette are firstly, to cut the olive oil half-and-half with sunflower seed oil, giving an overall lighter taste and consistency. Secondly, the usual wine vinegar is replaced with a combination of white wine vinegar + white balsamic vinegar + lemon juice, with the balsamic adding a sweet aura to the overall acidity. There is a nice citrus tang that lingers.
Great flavour - this'll brighten up any salad. It's basically equal quantities of tahini, olive oil and water, with soy sauce, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and fresh ginger.
A tangy salad dressing made with anchovies, garlic, mustard, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Traditionally, this is used to dress a Nicoise salad which is made up of tuna, hard-boiled eggs and black olives. But it's equally delicious when simply served over salad leaves or new potatoes.
