DO NOT OVERDRESS YOUR SALADS -
Too much salad dressing will weight down the salad ingredients and mask their flavors.
The dressing's role is to highlight not to overpower the salad ingredients. A
general rule is 1/4 cup of dressing for 6 cups of greens. As soon as your salad
is mixed, taste a leaf to see if there is sufficient dressing. If not, drizzle
some more over the salad, a tablespoon at a time; toss and taste again.
