This dressing only requires 4 ingredients- Balsamic, dijon mustard, a garlic clove and olive oil oops.... forgot to count the salt and pepper! From Colin Cowie's Effortless Elegance.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard, and garlic. Add the oil in a slow steady stream, whisking constantly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Alternatively, you could put all ingredients in a jar with a tight lid and shake.

This is delicious! I used extra virgin olive oil and added an extra little bit of dijon mustard. Whisked it up and used it in salads for the next 2 weeks. It tastes exactly the same the first day as it does in two weeks (refrigerated). Yum!

Why buy dressing at the store? This dressing is quick to put together and goes great on my different types of salads.
