  1. Whisk the vinegar and the salt together in the bottom of a large salad bowl until the salt melts.
  2. Gradually whisk in the olive oil and then the water. It is the water that makes this dressing super light.
  3. Stir in the herbs. Pile the greens on top of the dressing and toss everything together when you are ready to eat.

Chef Tips

Let the vinaigrette sit 5-10 minutes for the flavors to blend before tossing it together with the salad.

If you can’t find chervil, use 1 tablespoon of lightly chopped tarragon leaves.
