Mustard Vinaigrette

After seeing how we use the mustard vinaigrette in all our salads & over vegetables like asparagus & lentils, my guests wanted to have the recipe.

So here's how to make a basic mustard vinaigrette

You'll need

Mustard - I generally use mustard a l'ancienne (literally ancient mustard) also known as grain mustard. It's less tangy & makes the dressing looks prettier. But any regular mustard will do just as well.

Vinegar - I use red wine vinegar but you could also use balsamic vinegar.

Salt & Oil

1. In a small bowl, add 1-2 Tbsp of mustard

2. Next whisk in 1-2 Tbsp of vinegar

3. Then drizzle 1 Tbsp of oil into the mixture & whisk vigorously till it's well mixed before adding more oil. About 3-4 Tbsp of oil in total. As you are whisking, add salt to taste.

Tip from X : If the vinaigrette "falls" ie. the oil is not mixed properly, stir in a little bit of warm water. It should help hold it together.
