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 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp 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.
