How does one ask for "Dressing on the Side"?

Jump to last reply

I love the marvelous Salades Composee in France, but it is always a crap shoot if I can eat them. I do not like strong vinegary flavors, and often the salad comes with too much acid for me to enjoy. I have tried, "Vineigrette a part, s'il vous plait", but I sometimes get attitude from the waiter, and perhaps a tantrum from the Chef, as the salad will still come doused with oil and VINEGAR, with perhaps an extra container of dressing..

How can I ask politely for the salad to come au natural, with the dressing to come separately, or at least with a minimum of acetic acid?
