So the ratio is 3 parts fat to 1 part acid.
That's what I started the day with.. and oh man.. did I go off the rails. I did a straight up lemon juice with 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 olive oil.. what a horrible flavor that was. I added honey, red win vinegar, and chopped basil and lemon zest along with about a tbsp of sugar.
I whisked and whisked.. and it sort of seemed OK.. it wasn't great.
What in the hell is a vinaigrette?
To me.. it should be like a salad dressing.. but there is no way that is happening without a blender because 3 parts oil to 1 part acid means.. liquid.. even if I use a whisk. Do I need a blender because this stuff is weak?!
That was for my cucumber noodles..
For fish and chicken.. I ended up making a warm vinagrette with tangerine juice.. shallot.. and garlic..
It was liquid.. as a 3 to 1 ratio.. I mounted it with butter to make it a sauce.. (no way it was thick enough otherwise) im not sure what is going on.. im using.. Michael Ruhlman’s book on ratios.
