Salad Dressings & Vinaigrettes

Wednesday, February 22

That’s right, you read that correctly, you are going to make salad dressings. Once you know how to make them from scratch you’ll never buy another one again.

Today Chef Laura will assist you in making three different dressings: Champagne Vinaigrette, Green Goddess Ranch Dressing, and Sweet Apple Cider Vinaigrette.

You will learn how to balance the flavors so they enhance the salad you are dressing.  There’s definitely a technique to making you own vinaigrettes……they also make great gifts. Creating an emulsion with mixing oil & vinegar together, adding fresh spices versus dried. You will understand textures of a salad….its not just lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers.   Who would have thought salad could be so versatile.

Chef Laura will have a wide variety of salad ingredients for you to enjoy with your creations.

  • Roasting Cauliflower, chickpeas
  • How to use ingredients differently
