This is your standard vinaigrette (3 parts oil to one part acid), which can be fancied up any number of ways with different herbs, spices, tapenades, and what have you! Use whatever kinds of oils and vinegars (or other acids, like lemon or lime juice) you like, this is just my go-to for salads. Spring onions, shallots, garlic, and other flavourful additions will spice it up. Mustard makes a good emulsifier to prevent it from separating when mixed. Play around with different ingredients to find out what you like best!
Prep time: ~1 minute
