Vinaigrette for Green Salad

Servings: This recipe makes enough dressing for approx 6 - 8 small salads



1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp or clove minced fresh garlic

2 Tbsp champagne vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

½ cup good olive oil



1.     Whisk together the mustard, garlic, vinegar, pinch of salt, and ½ tsp pepper.

2.     While whisking, slowly add the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified (fully combined)

3.     Place salad greens in a medium bowl and add enough dressing to moisten. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper if needed.


Cook's Tip:

1.     Any type of vinegar (balsamic, cider vinegar, etc.) works great in this recipe. Use what you have at home and what you enjoy most!

2.     If you'd like a creamier dressing add a dollop of plain Greek yogurt and mix well.
