Ai-Mei’s Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Ingredients:

2 TBS champagne vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
6 TBS (1/3 cup) olive oil
Freshly ground pepper and salt to taste

Combine vinegar and mustard in a small container; slowly add olive oil while mixing** to make an emulsion. Season to taste.

When a recipe calls for just a few ingredients, use the best quality available. My preferred champagne vinegar is “O” and when I am very fortunate, I have olive oil from Chile (thank you Marcelo and Gisela) to use in this recipe.

** A small battery-operated whisk by Bonjour (https://smile.amazon.com/BonJour-Stainless-Hand-Held-Battery-Operated-Beverage/dp/B001DJ0ZU2/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1483030563&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=bon+jour+battery+operated+whisk) is perfect to quickly mix the dressing.
