Simple Vinaigrette

We followed the standard 3-to-1 oil-to-vinegar ratio for this super simple vinaigrette. For variety, add your favorite dried or chopped[ fresh herbs. Make a batch at the beginning of the week, and toss a few tablespoons with fresh greens for a quick weeknight salad. But remember that vinaigrette isn't just for salad: You can also use it as a quick sauce for fish or grilled chicken.]

Directions
  • Set a medium bowl on a kitchen towel shaped like an "O" (this helps keep the bowl steady while whisking).
