I just bought a bottle of verjus and need a bit of help. What proportion of evoo to verjus do you use to make salad dressing? Any other ingredients to add? garlic? mustard?

Any other ideas for using verjus?

      I've always used verjus to deglaze pans, especially with lamb or veal.I use Wolffer lately, and the bottle do come with recipes on them, I think this website may have borrowed a few. It is also good for making upscale aperitifs.

        Hi,
        since I know it, I use verjuice in nearly everything… a little more than I would use of lemon or vinegar, because it is less strong. I got mine from a German winery, their verjuice is very fruity and the acidity is mild:
