Editorial Reviews

The Daily Meal

Salads are a great way to enjoy summer vegetables and fruits, but I tend to find myself using the same lemon and olive oil dressing to coat my greens, salad and after salad. While it is delicious and easy to use, there are a ton of other creative vinaigrettes out there that help spruce up salads and make usual go-to recipes a little more exciting.

We turned to cookbook author Jeff Keys, whose recent book Well Dressed is filled with fun and exotic ideas for inspiration, and came up with a creamy avocado dressing of our own.

Try one of these four ideas below, and please let us know if you have any more to share!

Fresh Basil Vinaigrette

These flavors a perfect blend for three-bean or similar salads. And the flavors only get better after a day in the fridge.

Avocado and Mint Dressing

The creamy avocado in this dressing pairs well with the invigorating and bright taste of fresh mint and works wonderfully for a light yet filling summer salad.

Honey-Roasted Raspberry Vinaigrette

The anise-like flavor of tarragon blends well with the sweetness of summer raspberries making this a fantastic dressing.

Sesame Mint Vinaigrette

A salad dressing that capitalizes on exotic flavors from around the world.

Read an Excerpt

Warm Celeriac and Lemon Vinaigrette

Celeriac is a wonderful root vegetable whose gnarly appearance on the outside disguises the delicious vegetable inside. It tastes a bit like celery (of course) but with a nutty quality. When it is sautéed, roasted, or fried, a wonderful nutty, creamy taste complements the mild celery flavor. I love the contrast of warm dressings over cool salads.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups

1/3 cup mild olive oil

1 large celeriac bulb, peeled and cut into 1?4-inch dice (about 1 cup)

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 pinch kosher salt to taste

1 pinch freshly grated black pepper

2 tablespoons snipped fresh chervil

To make the vinaigrette

In a medium-sized sauté pan, add the olive oil and sauté the diced celeriac on low to medium heat until tender. Remove the sauté pan from heat and let cool a little.

Stir the vinegar and lemon juice into the sautéed celeriac and season with salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and adjust to your preference. Add the chervil. Just before serving reheat the vinaigrette and serve. This vinaigrette is great with cool, crispy green salads or as the dressing for a warm potato salad. Try tossing it with some greens and serve it with grilled fresh fish. This vinaigrette is best to use when freshly made.
