Vinaigrette will keep in the fridge for a week or so. Taste it again before using as it will likely have lost some of its zing and may need a little more vinegar. This quantity of vinaigrette will probably do you two or three salads.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ garlic c

Method

Whisk everything except the oil together in a bowl until well combined.

Pour in the oil while continuing to whisk: it should emulsify into a thick, creamy consistency.

Alternatively, vigorously shake everything together in a jam jar.

Taste and add more sugar, salt, pepper or mustard if desired.
