The Ultimate Vinaigrette


Thanks to my girl GP, I now have a fabulous new go-to dressing.



This dressing is from her new cookbook and it is super easy and super tasty. I served this vinaigrette on an arugula salad with fresh shaved Parmesan, it was perfection. I think it would honestly go great on any salad and who doesn't love a homemade dressing? It is so much better for you and fresher than store bought! I think this vinaigrette will most definitely be a staple in our house!




GP'S STANDBY VINAIGRETTE

2 TABLESPOONS DIJON MUSTARD
2 TABLESPOONS REAL MAPLE SYRUP
1/4 CUP RED WINE VINEGAR
2 TABLESPOONS VEGETABLE OR CANOLA OIL
1/4 EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
COARSE SALT
FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER

WHISK TOGETHER MUSTARD, MAPLE SYRUP AND VINEGAR. SLOWLY WHISK IN OILS AND SEASON TO TASTE WITH SALT AND PEPPER.
