Heavy cream, alone or in conjunction with oil, can be added to vinegar and mustard, producing a vinaigrette that is excellent with delicately flavored salads. Because of its subtlety, creamy vinaigrette can be flavored easily with herbs such as mint, chives, or chervil. It is also excellent for showcasing a special vinegar.

Combine the mustard, salt and pepper, and vinegar. Whisk in the cream. Gently stir in the olive oil. Stir in the chervil. Unlike standard vinaigrette, creamy vinaigrette is relatively stable and will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or so.
