“If you make a salad dressing but don’t like it, you have vineregret”

"Vinaigrette” dressing is a somewhat confusing word. It is not “vineregret” (vine regret)—except in jokes.

“No wonder this salad was terrible… I used vineregret dressing!” was posted on Twitter by Patrick Keller on March 4, 2011. “I’ve just put a dressing on my salad and I wish I hadn’t. It was vineregret” was posted on Twitter by Rachel Burns on September 9, 2017. “If you make a salad dressing but don’t like it you have vineregret” was posted on Twitter by Nik Nieblas on March 21, 2021. “What do you call a bad salad dressing? Vineregret” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on December 2, 2021.


Wikipedia: Vinaigrette
Vinaigrette (/vɪnəˈɡrɛt/ vin-ə-GRET) is made by mixing an oil with something acidic such as vinegar or lemon juice. The mixture can be enhanced with salt, herbs and/or spices. It is used most commonly as a salad dressing, but can also be used as a marinade. Traditionally, a vinaigrette consists of 3 parts oil and 1 part vinegar mixed into a stable emulsion, but the term is also applied to mixtures with different proportions and to unstable emulsions which last only a short time before separating into layered oil and vinegar phases.
