    What about using Red wine vinegar instead of Olive oil?

    • Kristen on October 18, 2012

      I would just leave the oil out rather than subbing in red wine vinegar since there is already some acidity. I like the flavor of the oil but it isn’t necessary.

    Can you use red wine vinegar instead of oil?

    Just wondering if you’ve ever tried this without the oil. With more than 7 cups of ingedients, I can’t imagine the 1/2 T of oil would be missed, so just curious. If it were me, I might try a squeeze of lime over the salad, either with or without the oil.

      It will definitely work without the oil. I just like the flavor of having a small amount of really flavorful olive oil.
