A Simple Cooking Formula + 3 Great Vinaigrettes

With summer comes warm weather, and that means lots of light, refreshing meals that take little or no time to cook. Meals like crisp entree salads start coming into play, so we figured that it was a good time to give one of our first infographics a makeover.

This simple salad infographic was the second infographic we ever created in Cook Smarts history, and we have grown our collection of printable cooking resources since then. But just because this infographic is an oldie doesn’t mean it’s not a goodie! It still gets shared constantly, and it’s one of our most handy resources.

With this simple guide, we teach you one of our most used cooking formulas – how to make a simple homemade vinaigrette.

Once you understand the basics of making vinaigrettes, you can ditch all those store-bought dressings that are filled with preservatives, and enjoy healthy, tasty, homemade dressings on all your summer salads. Plus you’ll free up tons of room in your fridge!

In addition to this easy cooking formula, we also share our 3 favorite vinaigrettes that will go great on a variety of salads.

Now, not only is our original salad infographic getting a makeover, you’ll also be able to download it for free and print it out so that you can reference it at anytime, whether you stick it on your fridge, hang it on the wall, or tuck it into a binder with all your cooking resources.

If you want to see a homemade vinaigrette in action, we’ve included a quick video below on how to make vinaigrettes.

Here’s to lots of light, healthy, and delicious salads to come!
