Objectives42 l.jpg
Objectives or meat with salad greens

  • Compare and contrast the three salad dressings—simple vinaigrette, mayonnaise, and emulsified dressing


Salad dressings l.jpg
Salad Dressings or meat with salad greens

  • Salad dressing should enhance the flavor of the salad

  • Three basic types of salad dressing include

    • simple vinaigrette

    • mayonnaise

    • emulsified dressing


Simple vinaigrettes l.jpg
Simple Vinaigrettes or meat with salad greens

  • The secret to a good vinaigrette is balancing the fat, acid, and seasonings

  • Oil provides the palate with a supple mouthfeel and acts as flavor carrier

  • Vinegar “cuts” the fat, adds another taste sensation, and prevents the oil from coating the palate


Simple vinaigrettes45 l.jpg
Simple Vinaigrettes or meat with salad greens

  • To achieve the desired balance, a 3:1 ratio of oil to vinegar is often used

  • When working with a stronger vinegar, most chefs change the ratio to 4 or 5:1

  • Because vinegar and oil separate, simple vinaigrette must be stirred immediately before service


Mayonnaise and emulsified dressings l.jpg
Mayonnaise and Emulsified Dressings or meat with salad greens

  • Simple vinaigrette separates because it is a temporary emulsion

  • An emulsion can be stabilized with egg or egg yolks to prevent separation


Mayonnaise and emulsified dressings47 l.jpg
Mayonnaise and Emulsified Dressings or meat with salad greens

  • When making mayonnaise, the tiny drops of oil become suspended in the water from the vinegar and egg

  • Proteins from the egg yolk keep the oil and water from separating

  • Mayonnaise is often used as a base for dressings and cold sauces


Technique preparing mayonnaise l.jpg

Preparation of mayonnaise and emulsified dressings can be done by hand, with an electric mixer, or in a food processor.

Place egg yolks, mustard, and vinegar in a bowl and whip to combine them well.

Technique: Preparing Mayonnaise

  • Refrigerate immediately.


Mayonnaise and emulsified dressings52 l.jpg
Mayonnaise and Emulsified Dressings done by hand, with an electric mixer, or in a food processor.

  • One egg yolk to one cup of oil is the standard proportion for making mayonnaise

  • Mustard and vinegar are often added to taste


Mayonnaise and emulsified dressings53 l.jpg
Mayonnaise and Emulsified Dressings done by hand, with an electric mixer, or in a food processor.

  • Emulsified dressings are made with the same technique used for creating emulsions

  • Herbs, spices, and cheese are common ingredients in emulsified dressings

  • Emulsified dressings are usually thinner than mayonnaise because of added liquid or the use of whole eggs


Ingredients for dressings l.jpg
Ingredients for Dressings done by hand, with an electric mixer, or in a food processor.

    • oil

    • vinegar

    • mustard

    • Flavored oils are extracted from ingredients that contribute their unique flavor


Ingredients for dressings56 l.jpg

  • Vinegars

    • Originally made from fermented barley juice, wine, or apple cider

    • Today, they are made from different types of wine, fruits, or herbs

  • Vinegars

    • Most vinegars are diluted to five percent acid

Ingredients for dressings58 l.jpg
Ingredients for Dressings done by hand, with an electric mixer, or in a food processor.

    • Its sharp flavor counters the richness of the oil

    • Helps to emulsify mayonnaise and emulsified dressings
