With salad season just around the corner (okay, I live in Arizona, it’s kind of ALWAYS salad season), here’s how to make a quick vinaigrette to dress up a handful of leafy greens on your plate.
Basic Mustard Vinaigrette
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 5-6 Tbs olive oil
- pinch dried parsley
- pinch dried thyme
- salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- In a clean jar or small bowl, add the vinegar, garlic, mustard and mix well.
- Slowly add the olive oil while either whisking or stirring rapidly with your fork.
- Add the parsley and thyme, salt and pepper, taste and adjust seasonings.
