I don't remember the episode, but both Julia and Jacques were into basic techniques and simple ingredients. Those shows were made before the 'fads' of balsamic, pomegranate, raspberry, etc.

I'd go with your first impression of just salt, pepper, olive oil, and a good wine vinegar. They usually emulsified with a little dijon and included some chopped shallot.

Thats what i was thinking, just keep it basic and let the veggies speak for themselves

Just needed someone to agree with me .

thanks

VEry good. there was none left. I know it was something basic and simple, with just so little time to prepare it , i didnt have time to play around, which is why i was looking for a few solid suggestions. Now that I have time before I do it again, I could research a little more and see what other possibilities there are .

Me too Constance! "Catalina" was one of the few sweetish dressings I actually liked. I haven't bought it in awhile - is it still around?

I used to love slicing an avocado in half, filling the pit holes with Catalina, & just enjoying both halves that way for lunch.
