Recipe Courtesy of: Elena Besser

Makes: ~1/2 cup dressing

  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Combine red wine vinegar, minced shallot, Dijon mustard, optional honey, a pinch of kosher salt and a couple grinds of freshly ground black pepper in a mason jar or bowl. Mix to combine. 

If using a mason jar, add in olive oil, seal, and shake to combine. If using a bowl, slowly stream in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to properly homogenize the dressing. Taste, and adjust seasoning as needed. Enjoy! 

Cook’s Note: Dressing will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
