Grainy Mustard Vinaigrette

When you want a vinaigrette that’s more assertive than the basic recipe, try this one.

Makes: about 1 cup

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons grainy mustard, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon each: dried oregano, dill, and basil
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a tightly lidded cruet or bottle and shake well. Shake well before each use.
