Vinaigrette: Not Just A Salad Dressing

It's the social butterfly of the condiment world
Apr 2, 2014 11:30 am

Vinaigrette is not that goopy syrupy-sweet yet tongue-curlingly acidic sludge distributed over the spring mix on one side of your plate. That is fakeass salad dressing. Vinaigrette is not there to make your spring mix palatable. It's the fairy godmother of the condiment world. It can grant whatever acidic wish any dish desires.

Soppressata vinaigrette is a sexy beast. So naturally, I had to take the concept to as many levels as possible and construct meat vinaigrettes. I'm not talking about sprinkling bacon bits on a salad with dressing from a bottle here.

Tangerine-Brown Butter Vinaigrette Recipe

Unlikely combination proves a big winner

Adding butter to vinaigrette might seem strange, but once you taste it, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it before. The nutty, rich brown butter gives the dressing some extra flavor and richness, and the mild acidity of the tangerines is the perfect foil. This sauce is beautiful on delicate fish such as albacore tuna and richer fish such as salmon or on steamed broccoli, or on roasted rings of butternut squash.
