Tossing a salad

Pour the oil over the salad leaves. Lift a portion of the leaves and turn them over as you drop them back into the bowl. Repeat until all the leaves are coated evenly.

Stirring vinegar into the skillet loosens and dissolves the flavorful juices on the bottom of the pan so they are not wasted. This is called deglazing.
