Looking for a well-balanced salad dressing combination?
There’s a general oil to vinegar ratio you can follow to create the perfect dressing for your salad every time …

If you prefer a little more acidity (like I do) you can always add more vinegar or another acid such as lemon or lime juice.
Test it out with this fresh and delicious salad recipe below.
