Ina Garten’s Champagne Vinaigrette (Easy Salad Dressing) – Tricks and Tips

Recipe Review: Ina Garten's Champagne Vinaigrette (Easy Salad Dressing)

This recipe is exquisitely easy with a short ingredient list. It’s a very simple vinaigrette, with one classic twist: egg yolk. While I’ve used egg yolk in other salad dressings, like Caesar dressing, I don’t regularly add it to vinaigrettes. This recipe taught me that adding an egg yolk lends just a smidge more richness to a dressing, without the heaviness of cream or yogurt. A vinaigrette enriched with egg yolk clings to the salad greens a little more closely, without weighing them down, and tastes satisfyingly creamy.
