Mustard Vinaigrette


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon herbs, dried
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
Whisk together garlic, vinegar, mustard, and dried herbs in a large bowl. Drizzle oils, very slowly at first, whisking constantly. As the oils are incorporated into the vinaigrette, add them at a faster pace, whisking constantly. Add salt, black pepper and sugar.

Store in the refrigerator until needed. This vinaigrette is best made 1 day in advance. If it separates in the refrigerator, simply let a portion of it warm up to room temperature and whisk it together to recombine.
