A salad would burst with flavours only if it is drizzled with a tasty dressing. It helps in enhancing flavour of the ingredients. Egg yolk, olive oil, yoghurt, lemon juice, vinegar, mayonnaise and pepper powder are some of the commonly used salad dressings.
A simple mix of olive oil, vinegar and salt would add oodles of flavour to the salad. However, make sure to mix these well before adding into the dish. One table spoon vinegar should be mixed with three table spoons olive oil to prepare this dressing. Those who are using mayonnaise should try using eggless mayonnaise that is low in calories. Mustard paste, herbs like oregano and sauces too could be used for adding flavour.
