What’s not to love about homemade vinaigrettes and dressings?  This is one of our favorite vinaigrettes. It goes with just about any ingredient you would put into a salad. It’s lovely on a platter of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. I think this would be amazing on a cold potato salad! I know it’s fabulous to drizzle over roasted vegetables. We had this recently over roasted cauliflower. It was outstanding.

A dressing is defined as more of a cold sauce used to added to salads. A vinaigrette is a particular type of dressing made from oil, vinegar or citrus, herbs and spices. Usually a vinaigrette has distinctive flavor profile that comes from the herbs used or the vinegars used, whether that’s in the form of vinegar or citrus.  A vinaigrette is also used for marinating and considered an enhancement to salads or crudite.
