protip: citronette

you probably know that a vinaigrette is a dressing made with equal parts oil and acid, usually with some kind of binder (like mustard) and salt and optional seasoning. but did you know that for it to be called a vinaigrette the acid has to be a vinegar? duh.

i didn’t know that until this week. turns out when you use citrus juice, like i often do, your dressing is called a citronette.

now go make someone a salad and be pretentious about it.
