    Try adding sugar to the above. I try not to abuse sugar, but sometimes when you combine it with the vinegar and herbs it can be great.

    Mom used to make a wonderful blue cheese dressing. I’m heading down to see her in the AM hopefully she remembers the recipe.

    Years ago I used to get Paul Corcellet brand raspberry vinegar. It was vinegar made from raspberries unlike the raspberry flavored red vine vinegar that passes for raspberry vinegar these days. It was delicious on salads, but I haven’t seen it in years.

    Roasted shallot vinaigrette:

    Pack a small ramekin (6 oz is good) with very coarsely cut shallots. Cover with olive oil and roast covered with pierced foil at 400°F for about an hour. Remove from oven and let cool.

    Put oil and roasted shallots in blender or food processor - you can also use a stick blender.
    Add:
    1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
    scant 1/4 cup olive oil
    1 tsp grainy Dijon mustard
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tbsp chopped parsley
    pinch of dried thyme leaves

    Blitz until smooth and emulsified. Add equal amounts of olive oil and vinegar to achieve desired consistency.

    “The Old Chart House” Blue cheese dressing. This is from the 60’s..…

    3/4 cup sour cream
    1 1/3 cups mayonnaise (Best Foods)
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt (put it in last if needed)
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (Treasure Cave)

    In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce. Season with mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir in blue cheese. Cover, and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving. (I eat it the same afternoon, but it gets even better when flavors have time to meld.)

    Olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar, a clove of crushed/minced garlic, pinch of salt and coarse ground mustard to taste. NO SUGAR. We use too much sugar

    Wow, I'd almost forgotten about The Chart House. Are they still around anywhere?

    I favor a simple puree of avocado, olive oil, garlic, lemon or lime juice, salt and pepper.

    This might do you: George Paul Raspberry Vinegar. From the sand hills of Nebraska. They grow the raspberries, make raspberry wine from the raspberries, and then make raspberry vinegar.

    $18 for 100ml.

    Get it while it lasts - it's seasonal, small batch stuff.

    And here's a cherry vinegar from Italy's Alto Aldige, made from 100% cherries, a mix of sweet and sour. $21/250ml.

    My favorite salad has two ingredients:

    Bacon
    Lettuce or other green stuff (optional, and possibly undesirable)

    Cook the bacon and eat it. Do what you want with the green stuff. I love salad!

    Actually, our go-to is James Beard's Spinach Salad, which does contain bacon.

    A splash of good quality olive oil, some balsamic vinegar, balsamic glaze, and a grind of fresh pepper. That’s assuming you’ve already added some fresh diced garlic to your salad.
