One of the questions that I get asked the most is not HOW to make a basic vinaigrette, but WHY anyone in the world would go through “all of the trouble” of making their own vinaigrette. After all, that place we all know as the supermarket has so many pre-made vinaigrettes and salad dressings, you could probably choose a different one everyday for a year and still not get through them all. Well, in this video short, I give 4 key reasons to make your own vinaigrette, which all boil down to one theme–control. Then I show you that making your own vinaigrette is actually no trouble at all, and can be done in less time than it takes to pick one from the dressing aisle in the grocery store! And after you watch the video, take a look at the Como Water Flavored Olive Oils and Vinegars cheat sheet, which summarizes all of the points from the video and suggests other creative uses for flavored oils and vinegars. Enjoy!
