Dress your salad

I was talking to a woman friend who owns a restaurant the other day and we started talking about salad dressing. 

I mentioned that they have changed so much in my lifetime. 

When I was a kid Roquefort dressing was a big deal, when was the last time you even saw it served or ordered? 

Same with Green Goddess or Russian, they get little play today.

Used to order the Russian at Anthony's on their wonderful Crab or Shrimp Louis. Now all gone.

I guess there has a been a sea change in our salad dressing tastes.

These were the Food Channel's top ten 5 years ago:

Bye bye French and honey mustard, the latter will not be missed. It is interesting to me that Italian has fell so far. Greek, it's Greek to me. Is salsa really a dressing? I guess we now live in a vinaigrette world.

You grew up in a vinaigrette world. My job every dinner was to make the salad dressing. Vinaigrette every day until the family split apart
