Bô is the word for “father,” and growing up we called my dad Bobo. Here is Bobo’s simple dressing for a salad. Think of the salad platter thrown into a bowl. Bobo’s dressing is delicious, balanced, and a perfect vinaigrette.


  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Maggi Seasoning Sauce


    In a small bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar and olive oil. Add the remaining ingredients, whisk together, and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Toss the dressing over any fresh salad.
