    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    I am really happy she won the Next Food Network Star challenge and really look forward to watching more of her show " Ten Dollar Dinners with Melissa d'Arabian". This is a great recipe that is easy to toss together yet really fresh tasting. Why use bottled dressing when you can do this?

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Mustard Vinaigrette

    Salad

    • 3 cups salad greens (mixed, the darker the better, not iceberg)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rub the inside of a large wooden bowl with the garlic clove and then either discard it or save it for another use.
    2. 2
      Put the mustard in the bowl and whisk in the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce (a French secret!) vigorously for about 10 seconds to get a creamy consistency.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    4. 4
      Drizzle in the olive oil as slowly as possible with 1 hand while whisking as quickly as possible with the other hand to emulsify.
    5. 5
      Lay the salad greens on top of the dressing and toss just before serving.

      Definitely worth a 5 star rating. It's so simple but absolutely delicious. The flavor of the vinaigrette is perfect. I wouldn't change a single thing. Just make sure you do have enough salad greens so the salad doesn't get over-dressed.

      Delicious! I added some sliced strawberries and caramelized almonds to it. I did change it up a little by reducing the oil to 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water. Everyone loved the vinaigrette. Thank you for sharing.
