Classic Vinaigrette

Vinaigrettes are typically made of oil, vinegar and seasonings and used on salads, meats and poultry and fish. This recipe is the basis for many varieties of vinaigrettes. Try using different oils, vinegars and jams. Also try coarse Dijon mustard with honey. The possibilities are endless.

1 part Vinegar – Use Balsamic, red wine or cider vinegar
2 parts Olive Oil – Use Organic Extra Virgin, if possible
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/2 - 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp Dry Mustard Powder ( or 2 tsp Dijon Mustard)
1 – 2 TB Honey ( You can also substitute fruit jam such as Blackberry, Raspberry or Strawberry)
Fresh Black Pepper and Sea Salt to taste

In a glass bowl combine all ingredients and whisk until completely blended.

Serve on salad, over cool pasta for a pasta salad, or use to marinate meat or fish.
