Dressing up those salad greens is the perfect arena for some Clementine creativity. For those of us still learning how to pair dressings with salad elements, check out the following tips: When preparing a vinegar based dressing, be sure to pair ingredients thoughtfully.

Light vinegars, including white wine vinegar, rice, or champagne vinegars, favor chicken and fish, as well as fruits such as pears, grapefruit, mango, and orange. Wondering about those delicious little additions like candied nuts and feta cheese? Thankfully, they pair with either kind of dressing!
