The secret to making an exceptional green salad is to toss the greens carefully and thoroughly. If you do this, you will find that a small amount of dressing will go a very long way.

The traditional balance for a vinaigrette is one part acid to three parts oil, but if the dressing is sweet, the proportion can go as low as one to one (good for low-fat salads).

Wash greens and dry them thoroughly (this is important because oil and water do not mix). Chill them in the refrigerator until ready to use. At the last moment, just before serving, dress the salad with Wild Elderberry Vinegar (we know where you can purchase it…..) and just a small amount of olive oil.
Toss thoroughly. You can always add more vinegar or oil to your taste. Sprinkle lightly with salt and grind a bit of fresh pepper over it.
