Neutral: Vinaigrette Dressing

Use on green or mixed salads. Provides a great appetizer if you add the vinaigrette to hot cooked broccoli, cauliflower or carrots.
Note: Since the amount of lemon/lime juice used is modest, this dish belongs to the neutral food group but if you use significantly more juice, this vinaigrette dressing may belong to the protein food group.
