Dijon DressingLet’s face it: Eating virtuously can sometimes be a challenge. Who among us hasn’t been heard speaking disdainfully of salad as “rabbit food”? The true secret to creating enjoyable salads is often to be found not in the main ingredients, but in the dressing. Having an arsenal of tasty dressing recipes can help you keep climbing Michi’s Ladder to a healthy lifestyle—here’s a great Dijon dressing, full of heart-healthy olive oil, that’s easy to whip up and will add tanginess, zinginess, and other fun stuff ending in “-iness” to your next salad.

  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Small bowl
  • Wire whisk

In small bowl, whisk together garlic, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper until mixed. Continue whisking while adding olive oil in a small, steady stream. Continue until oil and vinegar mixture is completely blended. Can be made ahead of time—store in refrigerator in shaker bottle with lid and shake well before serving. Makes 3 servings.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
