Here's how I go about making a "standard" salad dressing after placing lettuce in a bowl. I first pour in the oil and turn the salad to coat everything. Next, I add the red wine vinegar or a mixture of balsamic and red wine vinegars with s&p along with spices and toss the mixture. Doing it that way seems to make for a tastier salad than mixing the dressing separately then pouring it on. Coating the greens first with oil seems to produce a more flavorful salad. Any comments?
