I have a dressing receipe that calls for white vinegar. I only have white "wine" vinegar in the house. Are they the same/can I substitute?

"White vinegar" usually means distilled white vinegar, but you can definitely substitute with white wine vinegar.

They aren't exactly the same, but in my experience, white wine vinegar has a lot more flavor than just distilled white vinegar--a little sweeter, not as astringent. My guess is that your dressing will taste better for using it. (I frequently use the two interchangeably.)
