Lets talk salad dressing

hungryabbey | Aug 9, 2011 06:28 PM

I try to make my salad dressings a little bit lower in fat than the "gold standard" 3 parts oil, 1 part vinegar, and balance it out usually with some type of sweetner (honey, sugar, maple syrup depending on the dressing)... They always taste good to me but wonder if thats ONLY because I kind of like acidic flavours.. to me it doesn't taste acidic.. Whenever I try the 3:1 ratio, it doesn't taste like anything to me. What am I doing wrong?

So, a few questions:

What is your basic vinaigrette recipe/ratios?
Do you find a more acidic dressing offensive?
Any tried and true recipes that everyone seems to love?

Thanks in advance!
