I always use citrus & olive oil or acv & olive oil.
Looking for a little inspiration please.
What’s your favorite recipe?😁

    I like to change up with a slightly asian version occasionally that also has a lower oil to dressing ratio than classic vinaigrette. Equal parts soy sauce, balsamic, and hazelnut oil.

    You always have such interesting ideas!
    I’ve wondered if the nut oils taste like the nuts? Particularly, almond and hazelnut. They’re pretty expensive, at least here. I did purchase a small bottle of almond oil, but haven’t used it yet.

    Nut oils really taste like nuts to me. Hazelnut oil is expensive, and I have done this with walnut oil which is pretty pricey as well. A cheaper alternative is sesame oil which tastes pretty nutty too. Have not tried almond oil so let us know how that is.

    I’m going to try this with my almond oil. Wish I had hazelnut. You really do have amazing culinary ideas/ skills. Thanks!

    Actually I don't understand anything about the flavour of nut oils, I realize. Hazelnut, walnut, and sesame oil all have a strong nutty taste where the nut or seed they are made from is easily identifiable. But why does peanut oil taste totally neutral? I've never tasted almond oil but will pick some up if I see it.

    balsamic vinegar add PURE maple syrup to taste. I don’t use any oil, but you can add a little if you like.

    I usually start with a cup of vinegar, add maple syrup until you get the taste you like.

    I use this on salads, chicken. etc. chicken cooked in Maple syrup is heavenly.

    I’ve always figured that’s because the peanut isn’t a true nut, in that it’s a legume? But I’m not sure where that leaves seed oils..except sesame oil is always from toasted seeds? Other seed oils are generally fairly bland.

    As for the original question, I never use a salad dressing, just prefer my salad without!

    It's not really a vinaigrette, but it's delicious. I put the measurements in parts, I mix it up when I'm about to use it rather than making a batch.

    When I'm not doing keto I omit the oil and it's a very tasty 0 cal dressing.

    2 parts avacado oil (2 tbsp)
    1 part apple cider vinegar (1 tbsp)
    2 parts dijon mustard (2 tbsp)
    Stevia to taste

    I like to just sprinkle on some bleu cheese crumbles, salt, and pepper...tastes good and not as crazy calorie filled as actual bleu cheese dressing.

    My favorite is simple:

    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.
    3 tbsp fresh lemon juice.
    Salt to taste (I use about 1/2 tsp)

    Asian favorite:

    3 tbsp sesame oil.
    3 tbsp rice vinegar. (you can use the sushi vinegar if you want sweet/milder)
    3 tbsp soy sauce.

    I use EVOO, red wine or rice wine vinegar, a bit of honey, dijon mustard, clove of minced garlic and salt and pepper.

    Ingredients
    3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, (or other vinegar)
    2 Tbsp Dijon mustard (or yellow, brown, spicy)

    I love this for 2 reasons... it's yummy and it's simple!
    Wait... there's a 3rd reason. 99 times out of 100, I have the ingredients on hand!
