Salad dressing pairings

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What kind of salad dressing do I pair with certain foods? E.g., say I'm serving something creamy or cheesy. Do I pair it a creamy dressing? It seems to match, but its also redundant. Or, say, I make a lemon chicken. Pair it with a tart vinegar-based dressing? Again, it matches, but seems redundant. Sorry for the elementary question, but I haven't been able to find an answer on this. Thanks.

I wouldn't pair a creamy dressing with a creamy main course. I'd go the vinaigrette route to offset the richness.

 

But, then, I pretty much ONLY do vinaigrettes, using varying combinations of vinegars and oils.  I'm not a big fan of creamy dressings. Not even on potato salads or cole slaws.
