Recipe Notes

For vinegar, use apple cider, white or red wine vinegar. If you don't have any on hand, use white but I always recommend keeping it only for cleaning. I prefer apple cider vinegar.

It might separate while sitting in your fridge. Simply shake well before using in a salad or other recipe.
