Dijon Mustard Vinagrette

saladI strive to eat a balanced diet, which means at least five servings of fruits and vegetables. A salad with cucumbers and one other vegetable is a great way to help meet those five servings. For this salad dressing recipe, I took a basic vinagrette, added dijon mustard and substituted red wine vinegar for apple cider vinegar. The result is a great tasting and less tart vinagrette that makes you want to chow down on salad.

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (You can add more or less olive to suit your tastes.)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • Dried basil and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Mix the olive oil and apple cider vinegar together. Add the dijon mustard, basil and pepper. Blend well. Don’t refrigerate or it will turn into a jelly mess. Trust me.
