The Perfect Homemade Vinaigrette Recipe
Makes 1 cup
1/2 cup extra balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Note: This recipe works great with any kind of vinegar you love, especially red wine vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is full of health benefits and is also great in this recipe. I love high quality, balsamic vinegars....My favorites this summer have been aged Peach or Fig Balsamic. For the best taste, look for small bottles of well-aged balsamic. The huge bottles tend to be too acidic.
Whisk all ingredients except the olive oil in a small bowl, then stream in the olive oil while you continue to whisk until the dressing has emulsified.
For a single serving, use one tablespoon each vinegar and oil, a small dab of mustard (about 1/8 teaspoon and just small pinch of salt and pepper.
