Classic French-Style Vinaigrette
- 2 tbsps white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon style mustard
- Pinch sugar
- 6 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Place the vinegar, mustard and the sugar in a bowl or small jar and mix well so the mustard and sugar completely dissolve. Add the oil, salt and a generous grind of black pepper, and whisk or shake the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. Store in the refrigerator in a screw-top jar.
Use this dressing on any classic salad, especially leafy green leaves that have been washed and dried well. Only dress the salad immediately before serving.
Makes about half a cup.
