Directions

  1. In a bowl whisk together the vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar if using, until the salt has dissolved.
  2. Gradually beat in the olive oil until well blended. Taste for sharpness. If the dressing is too sharp, beat in some water, a little at a time, until your dressing is to your taste.

Chef Tips

I often add water to my dressings to cut down on the oil. If you want your dressing heavier, add an extra spoon of oil instead of the water.

This makes 1/2 cup of dressing, which gives 4 servings ( each serving being 2 tablespoons).
