Type of Recipe:
Salad Dressing, Sauce
Dijon Herbal Vinaigrette
Of all the Dijon vinaigrettes I’ve made, this one is by far my favorite.
The difference maker in this recipe, I believe, is the acidity brought on by the champagne vinegar. That paired with lemon juice, herbs, and garlic makes for a fresh, delicious tasting vinaigrette.
This dressing can be used in other salads, as a marinade or dipping sauce. So feel free to get inspired!
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. champagne vinegar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup mixed herbs (rosemary, chive, tarragon, thyme), finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
