Basic Vinaigrette Recipe
One of the great things about vinaigrette is that it is so versatile and flexible. All you need is a reliable basic vinaigrette recipe and all it’s other variations stem from just this. Below is a basic recipe for vinaigrette, which you can adjust and alter to create several variations.
You will need:
4 to 6 cloves garlic, peeled
About 1 teaspoon salt
About 2 cups red or white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
About ½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
About 2 cups extra virgin olive oil (or 1 cup olive oil and 1 cup canola oil)Method:
On a chopping board, finely mince and smash your garlic cloves. Before doing anything, though, sprinkle the garlic cloves with salt to prevent the pieces from sticking to your knife as you mince. This also comes in very handy, as you will be adding salt to your vinaigrette later on, anyway. read more of this post at, http://oilandvinegar.cruets.com/291/vinaigrette-basic
