"To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomatist -- the problem is entirely the same in both cases. To know exactly how much oil one must put with one's vinegar."
-Oscar Wilde, Poet
The ingredients for a vinaigrette are more important than with other dressings. Use the highest quality olive oil. I have quality inexpensive oil that I cook with, but a rich, mellow Tuscan oil should be used for a recipe such as this one. There is a difference in price, but it will show in the final flavor of your dressing.
