Our lighter version of Basic Mustard Vinaigrette is delicious with crunchy salads or with lightly steamed veggies like green beans, cauliflower, or broccoli, but really it’s good with just about any salad. I like...

Directions

  1. Spoon the mustard into a large salad bowl, with a pinch of salt and a grind or two of black pepper. Add the vinegar to the mustard and whisk until completely blended and smooth.
  2. Beating continuously, slowly add the oil into the mustard mixture until it is all combined and you have a thick smooth cream. Add half of the water and beat to blend. Taste for sharpness. If it is still too sharp, beat in the rest of the water, or a little more oil, depending on how light you like your dressing. Adjust for salt and it''s ready!

Chef Tips

For a richer dressing,  use 3 tablespoons of olive instead of 2 and discard the tablespoon of water.
