Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the garlic with 1/4 teaspoons salt in a mortar and pestle until it breaks down into a puree. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, chop the garlic, then use the side of a large knife and press the garlic with the salt to make a paste.
  2. Combine the garlic, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl, then whisk in the oil and seasoning with pepper.
  3. Taste and balance the flavors to taste. Enjoy!

Enjoyed this nice vinaigrette on a green salad that sadly did not have any beans in it, Sharon description says this is great on beans and after trying it do believe it would be a delight on beans. Made as written using a good sherry vinegar which gave sweet wine flavor to the dressing. Thanks for the post.

Very good, and very easy- a winning combination in my mind :) The sherry vinegar is very mild, so this would be great on a delicate salad. I used it over baby spinach, with some sweet bell peppers and Manchego thrown in for variety. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8

Fun vinaigrette! I ended up adding some extra vinegar, extra mustard, a pinch of sugar and about 1/2 tsp of veggie boullion (powdered). Used atop a salad of lettuce, roasted red pepper, tomato, cucumber and chickpeas. Made for ZWT8 for Team Jammin Jazzberries. Thanks!
