Genius Recipes

There are many great recipes out there dubbed “genius” and some of them are indeed brilliant.

For my purposes, however, a genius recipe should be more than delicious, or even healthy, quick, easy etc.; in addition to these attributes, for me, the thing that makes a recipe truly genius is flexibility. A good example of this is vinaigrette …

Genius Vinaigrette Recipe

There a mathematical formula for making vinaigrette - 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar or other acidic ingredient such as lemon juice. This is, of course, super flexible: you can use different oils (olive, nut, peanut, sesame etc.) and different acids (various citrus juices, different vinegars), seasonings (honey, brown sugar, garlic, spices, etc.) and additions (fresh tomatoes, grated ginger, and so on) to make a vinaigrette exactly right for your intended dish.  Read more about vinaigrettes here including lots of suggestions, recipes, tips and serving suggestions and to get an idea of a genius recipe.
