Homemade Viniagrette

From the Fresh Market Inspirations:

The easiest way to make a vinaigrette is by mixing every ingredient except the oil, then add the oil very slowly.  Place the ingredients in a jar, twist the lid on tight and shake it up or use a whisk and bowl.

1/4 C balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp mustard
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar and mustard.  Slowly pour in olive oil, whisking constantly until combined. Season with salt and pepper.  If vinaigrette is too strong, add a bit of honey or brown sugar.  For some added flavor, toss in some garlic or shallots.

Beachgirl notes:  I’ll try this with honey mustard, or dijon mustard…
