Tossing Salads

When tossing a salad with dressing, use a light hand. Mix the greens or other vegetables with a relatively small amount of dressing, distributing it with numerous tossing. On average, about one to two tablespoons of salad dressing per serving of greens will lightly coat them without making the salad soggy.

To toss a salad with the minimum of oil-heavy vinaigrette, start with a tablespoonful or so of dressing in the bottom of an empty bowl, add roughly one-fourth to one-third of the greens and toss well. Add a bit more vinaigrette, a bit more greens, and toss again. Continue until the desired amount of salad is prepared.
