Now that you’ve learned the perfect basic vinaigrette technique from Melissa Clark in this video, it’s time to expand your repertoire. Here, seven fantastic vinaigrettes, and each takes just five minutes to prepare.

1. Ginger Vinaigrette 
This punchy Asian-inspired vinaigrette gets some great subtle heat from freshly grated ginger.

2. Creamy Feta Vinaigrette 
Instead of tossing chunks of feta into a salad, puree it right into this luscious, tangy vinaigrette.

3. Dijon Vinaigrette 
This classic dressing is great on almost anything from leafy greens to apples and pears.

4. Basil Vinaigrette 
A food processor does all the work for this summery vinaigrette.

5. Cranberry Vinaigrette 
This sweet, tart and tangy dressing gets a terrific kick from bitters.

6. Honey-Lemon Dressing 
Honey and lemon are a classic duo. They are terrific in this dressing with savory thyme.

7. Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette 
This deliciously tart vinaigrette is perfect on a crisp cucumber salad or even a steak salad.
