St. Andrew's Champagne Vinaigrette


The basic components of this dressing can be varied to suit your tastes. Try, for example, red wine, balsamic, or rice vinegar instead of white wine vinegar; use vegetable or chicken broth in place of water; substitute other fresh herbs for the oregano, such as chives, tarragon, or basil.
