Italian Vinaigrette instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients except oil first, and stir until ALL the salt and sugar are dissolved, and then adjust the seasoning before adding the oil. A little more sugar if the vinegar's too acidic, a little more salt if needed – because it's hard to taste through the oil..
  2. Add oil and remember to give it all a good stir just before dressing so you get an even distribution of oil and vinegar in your salad..
  3. Enjoy!.
