... salad

Dressing .... a sauce. (Hollandaise, for one....I had to learn this sauce to perfection in culinary school. It's one of the five "mother sauces" in French Cuisine. The other four are Béchamel, Espagnole, Veloute, and Tomato. ie: Everything else is based on them . Although I could never justify the raw egg thing in Hollandaise. I actually got a lower grade because I refused to eat it. As I told the chef/ instructor, "Sorry but I don't do well with Salmonella".

Hence the term Ostracism
