I like to make my dressings in jam jars, because it’s so easy to see what’s going on and you can shake them up easily. With the exception of the yoghurt dressing, they’re all based on a ratio of three parts oil to one part acid (vinegar or lemon). Generally, this ratio is a really good benchmark for making any dressing, but it’s always sensible to have a little taste once you’ve shaken it up. If the seasoning is there but you’re finding it a little too acidic, you’ve cracked it, because once the dressing is on the salad leaves it will be perfect.
