Grainy Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette

17 02 2010
This is a classic vinaigrette with a bit of a bite. It is easy to make in a blender and then store in a glass jar in your refrigerator. I prefer to have some homemade salad dressings on hand rather than use store bought. I don’t like the thickening agents that they add to them.

1/2 cup cider vinegar

1/4 cup grainiy Dijon mustard

4 cloves garlic, peeled

1 tsp salt

freshly ground black pepper

1 to 3 leaves fresh basil

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine the vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper and basil in a food processor or blender. Turn on the machine and with the motor running, gradually add in the oil in a slow drizzle.
