    5 : Salads & Salad Dressings A salad can be a single food or a mix of different foods accompanied by or bound with a dressing. Salads are very presentation oriented. They set expectations for good things to come! A well-constructed salad has a balance of fresh, diverse, nutritious, flavourful, and creative ingredients and textures.
    6 : The five main categories of Salads: 1. Appetizer – Visual appearance is critical. Should stimulate the appetite, light crisp & fresh. 2. Accompaniment- Usually lunch & sandwiches, these take the place of veggies or starch. 3. Full sized meal. Contain a substantial amount of protein (eggs, seafood, cheese…) 4. Separate course- Many finer est. serve these as a refresher after the main course. The purpose is to cleanse the palate and provide a break for dessert. Not filling (sorbet). 5. Dessert Salads.

    9 : Salad Dressings A Dressing is a sauce for salad. An Emulsification is the binding of two generally unmixable liquids such as oil & vinegar. There are two distinct types of emulsions. These are classified as temporary emulsions: as in a vinaigrette, and permanent emulsions: as in a mayonnaise. A mayonnaise is held together by an emulsification agent such as mustard and does not separate over time.
    10 : Mayonnaise is: A permanent emulsion One large egg yolk can hold 240 ml of oil.
    11 : Vinaigrettes are: Temporary emulsions (they separate into oil & vinegar over time.) At a ratio of 3 –1 : oil to vinegar
    12 : Oils Good quality oils should be used for salads. Virgin, extra virgin, and cold pressed are all designations of high quality, first pressed oils. Extra Virgin Olive Oil – from the first cold pressing- the finest and the fruitiest (1% acid) Pure- is cleaned, filtered stripped of much flavour through heat and pressing. It is also less expensive Grape seed oil- delicate neutral flavour, high smoke point. Very good for you.
    13 : VINEGARS The acetic content of most vinegar ranges from 5-8%. This can greatly affect the tartness or sharpness of the vinegar. Balsamic, Raspberry, Blueberry, Red wine, Champagne, Tarragon…
    14 : CHEF’S TIP Use neutral oils if you want the flavour of the salad to come through, and a strong oil if you want the dressing to be the dominant item (Caesar dressing).
