Olive oil, vinegar, and mustard.
Salads are often dressed at the last minute simply by adding oil, vinegar, and salt one after another without emulsifying first. The result: one leaf is too salty, the other is soaked in oil, and the next is drenched with vinegar. Emulsifying the dressing before pouring it on the salad is a must, in my opinion. Besides, when you are preparing it in advance, you save time!

One really shouldn't forget that while this combination is a classic, you can easily change it up by changing oils and vinegars. I like using red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar alternatively, or, obviously, balsamic vinegar. A sprig of dried thyme, a bay leaf or a whole clove also give it nice character; green olive oil, black olive oil; first cold press or even infused canola oil. What's crucial however is the quality of the ingredients: the better they are (particularly the oil) the better the end result. A very good quality oil is typically only used for vinaigrettes or as a finishing touch on a meal, not for cooking or marinating.
I must admit I am a beginner cook. Before getting to know SOS Cuisine, I did not even know that one can make his own vinaigrette... And this one is: 1.simple; 2.tasty; 3.cheap; 4.you make it once and keeps for a long time. Thanks SOS!
LOVE IT - Perfect balance and so versatile - hardly needs any salt & pepper.
