Salad Dressing 101: Oil to Vinegar Ratio

Are you struggling to find a perfect and consistent balance with your salad dressing?

There’s a general oil to vinegar ratio you can follow to create the perfect dressing for your salad every time …

3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar seems to tickle the palate of most. 

If you prefer a little more acidity (like I do) you can always add more vinegar or another acid such as lemon or lime. 

Test it out with this awesome Fall inspired salad recipe below.
