Recipe Notes

My favorite herbs to play with in this dressing are thyme, tarragon, oregano, chives, garlic or basil. A great rule of thumb is to choose one to complement your dish. Herbs should be subtle and enhance the flavor of your main ingredient rather than over power it. Dried herbs are typically 3 times more potent than fresh. If substituting dried herbs for fresh, use 1 tsp. This recipe yields about 1/2 cup of red wine vinaigrette.
