I needed a basic dressing for a salad of chick peas, tomatoes, cucumber and avocado. This one seemed easy to scale up to a larger amount so I chose it. It worked very well, and I look forward to using it often. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I wanted to add: the important thing about this recipe, and what I was looking for when I found it, is that it gives the ratio of vinegar to oil. One part vinegar to three parts oil. If you remember that, you can do anything.
