oil n vinegar
no this is not another thread about people getting along...
i love oil, vinegar, sea salt and pepper on my salads. but i'm getting a little sick of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. any suggestions on other oil and vinegar combos would be much appreciated!

I'm particularly fond of white wine vinegar + olive oil + dijon mustard + garlic powder + black pepper. I actually don't bother with the oil because I like my dressings really tangy.

i like to mix things up a little sometimes with adding just a little raw cabbage and shredded carrots and maybe some bean sprouts to my salad and then dress with rice wine vinegar, a bit of sesame oil, a little mirin and just enough grapeseed oil to balance. delish!

Apple cider vinegar makes great dressing as well.

red wine vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil (add garlic, salt, pepper, basil and whatever else you like!).
also try champagne vinegar (if you can find it)-and olive oil and a drop of dijon mustard (plus seasonings). the champagne vinegar seemed a little expensive when i bought it but i use this one all the time. it is sooooo worth it!!
i too get bored w/ balsamic!

honey mustard, rice wine vinegar, lemon or lime juice, salt, pep, a tbsp maple syrup..

evoo, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, italian seasoning (or oregano) and fresh ground pepper! The soy sauce adds the salt and a nice kick.

I get tired of the same thing also I find that using my handheld stick blender it makes the dressing almost creamy this is a nice alternative.

Going along with champagne vinager, try chardonney vinager if you can find it (I live in wine country, so it's pretty readily available). It makes a great dressing all by itself.

seeing as most have suggested different vinegars, let me suggest almond oil, macadamia nut oil, sesame oil, or walnut oil. Things I may put in blender with the oil and vinegar of choice:
roasted red pepper pieces with cilantro
sun dried tomatoes with basil
red pepper flakes with garlic and herb mrs. Dash
rasperries and lime juice
soy sauce, ginger, and a dash of oj
I'll note however, that I tend to make about 3/4 of a cup of dressing at a time, and usually have 3 or 4 homemade ones to choose from in the fridge. (I eat ALOT of salad...)

I have red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar in my kitchen, and use them separately or occasionally in combination for different flavors. I also sometimes add powdered mustard (Coleman's) to my salad for an extra kick.
Have others have already mentioned a shake or two of basil, oregano, dried ground bay leaves, marjoram in addition (or instead of) salt + pepper? And fresh parsley can be great. If you're really brave, you can also try fresh coriander (cilantro) -- lots of people love it.

I use a cabernet sauvingon vinegar that is delicious alone.

Use some silken tofu (need to blender for this one) as your base for dressings - don't laugh! It's high in protein, low in fat. Also cooked carrots (blender also) make a great base. Try yogurt and cucumber with garlic for greek style dressings.

i had sesame oil, soy sauce & cilantro on my salad last night. a nice change, thanks for the suggestions!
