I only use olive oil and add either red wine vinegar or balsamic in general but I also keep sherry, and white wine vinegar on hand as well. To make it into an emulsion start with the vinegar in a bowl and slowly whisk in the oil as you drizzle it in. This helps creates the emulsion. Remember to season.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being a made-from-scratch cook and 10 being...
Not so much of an issue in the south where central air keeps the whole house cool. Here in NYC we have wall units and window units and they're not as effective. But I have a dish I want to make and I might brave it.
