This is the basic dressing that I always have ready to go in my fridge. It’s the work of moments and always makes even the simplest plate of salad leaves feel just a bit special.


  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp


Put the mustard, salt, balsamic vinegar and olive oil into a small jar and shake until combined. Add a pinch of two of caster sugar, or, even nicer, ½-1 tsp of maple syrup to taste. This is lovely when freshly made but will also keep in the fridge for 7–10 days or so, just refresh the dressing by giving the dressing a quick shake before using.
