A SALAD DRESSING YOU WILL USE EVERY DAY!

A couple of weekends  ago I was helping out in the kitchen of a very dear friend.  Her parents were coming for lunch and we were running late, so I offered to make the salad.  Her Mom, Betty, asked if I would share the salad dressing recipe.

I make this dressing almost every day.  I use it for salads or over left over chicken or meat.  It’s quite thick which makes it a perfect dip for raw vegetables.

VIRGINIA’S SIMPLE SALAD DRESSING:

1 tb Dijon mustard,  1 tb honey,   1 tb red wine vinegar in your salad bowl.  Slowly whisk in 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil and whisk vigorously until thick.  Now add a good sprinkle of sea salt or kosher salt and several grinds of black pepper.  Taste  to see if it needs more seasoning.

Toss an 8 oz container of mixed greens  or a head of coarsely torn green leaf lettuce into the bowl.  Now give it a good toss to coat each leaf with the lovely dressing.  It’s that simple.  If you want you can add any other fresh vegetables . perhaps some sliced red onion.  It’s your call.  But be assured.  On those days when you want a salad, but don’t feel like going to the bother of making one, this is your answer.   Enjoy.

  1. Yes, You are right about that!!!!

    and so I made it tonight as a matter of fact, with a sort of trumped up “Cobb” with eggs, chicken, avocado, lettuce and blue cheese and it was scrumptious.

    And a glass of wine. And turned on the fireplace channel (seriously) and listened to the crackle of wood burning on Rogers cable! and enjoyed my salad with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

    Love your tree!!!! and want to listen to Linus and Lucy.
