A vinaigrette is traditionally made by mixing oil with an acid, such as vinegar or lemon juice. With this recipe, we also add mixed herbs for an earthy taste.

Ingredients:

1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. white-wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped mixed herbs (ie:  tarragon, chives, and cilantro)
Salt and pepper

 

 

 

Directions:

  1. Combine mustard, garlic, and vinegar.
  2. Slowly whisk in olive oil.
  3. Mix in herbs.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • I don’t care for Dijon mustard, so I substituted brown mustard instead – it gave the vinaigrette a darker color and more earthy, spicy taste.  Hey, I would even use yellow mustard instead of Dijon, that’s how much I don’t like Dijon! Brown mustard has a higher concentration of the mustard seed, making it more spicy.  I know that you mustard purists out there won’t like that substitution – don’t email me 🙂
