The easiest way to make a salad dressing is to fill a small jar to about half way with extra virgin olive oil and add balsamic vinegar (find a good quality) to about ¾ full (add less vinegar if too strong). Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, put on the top and shake well to mix.
For a bit of variety, you can add a crushed clove of garlic or a teaspoon of dijon mustard to the jar and shake well. No exact quantities. Just add the ingredients to your liking.
- 2 teaspoons mustard (English, whole grain or mild/Dijon)
- 1 teaspoons dried tarragon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 dessertspoon honey
- Freshly ground black pepper
Add all ingredients to a small screw topped jar. Put on lid, and shake well to mix. Voila!
