Salad Making Tips
The ratio for a vinaigrette is typically 3 parts oil to 1 part
vinegar or lemon juice, etc…
Chill the serving plates to keep your salad crisp longer.
Potatoes will absorb more dressing if you dress them hot then
Cook pasta for salads very al dente. This will allow the pasta to
absorb some of the dressing and not become mushy.
Fruit juices such as pineapple, orange or mango can be used as
salad dressing by adding a little vegetable oil, a dash of nutmeg
and honey if desired.
To turn a vegetable or pasta salad into a main dish, add seafood,
meat, chicken, or beans.
