Oil & Vinegar! Who knew?  It is such a great gift.  

I first heard for this store from a neighbor.  They had us over for a dinner when we first moved to Linden Hills.  They had several bottles setting out for salad dressings.  You could make your own.  So fun! 

So we ventured to Vinaigrette to buy some of our own.  It could have been overwhelming, but the staff walked us through the store.  Let us (over ) taste test.  Gave us perfect combinations.  

This is now my go-to place for birthday,  house warming and wedding gifts.
