My Favorite Salad Dressing

June 25, 2013 @ 6:13 pm | Filed under: Food

I make up a serving of this simple vinaigrette almost every day for my lunchtime salad. I could make a bigger batch to keep in the fridge, but there’s something very satisfying about stirring up just enough for the day. So quick, so tasty.

To make a single serving, I slosh a tablespoon of olive oil into a bowl, letting it overflow just a little—a tablespoon and a splash, we’ll say. Then a squeeze of mustard, stir stir stir, and a scant tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Dash of salt, and we’re done. Especially good with some gorgonzola crumbles in the salad. I’m eating that now, which is what made me think of posting this. Delicious!

  1. Sounds delicious, what kind of mustard do you use?

    How long does it stay good in the refrigerator when you make the big batch?

  2. I use white wine vinegar, but you just described my favorite, too. I use TJ’s spicy mustard. Yum!

  3. Hi! This dressing IS great! When I lived abroad my French roommate used to make this with stone ground mustard. To me it is one of the best dressings!

  4. I am allergic, sadly, to sulfates, so a lot of stuff like wine and balsamic are no-no’s, but I use kalamata tapenade – just a tablespoon or so – instead and red wine vinegar, and it’s tasty-tasty.
