Prep Time: 07 minutes
Serves: 6 Individuals


No special equipment is needed to make this wonderful salad dressing.



We enjoy a tart vinaigrette that has a little more vinegar/lemon taste – you can reduce the lemon or vinegar or increase the olive oil if you prefer a vinaigrette that is less tart.  

2 ½ tablespoons Red-Wine Vinegar
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 ½  teaspoons Dijon Mustard
½  teaspoon Salt
"Smidgen" of Cayenne Pepper
"Pinch" of White Pepper
½ teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/8  teaspoon Dill Weed
1 ½ tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 cup Olive Oil



Mix all ingredients well except the olive oil – if you have a salad dressing carafe use that and shake well.  If you don’t have a carafe, use a bowl and whisk the ingredients together.  Once the ingredients are mixed add the olive oil slowly and mix in shaking or whisking slowly until all is mixed in.  Serve on a salad as desired.
