You may have seen mustard listed as an ingredient in vinagrette.
It adds delicious flavor, but it also serves as an emulsifier, so the dressing doesn’t break back into separate oil and vinegar layers.
You can use prepared Dijon mustard, or–if you like some heat–Coleman’s mustard.
Prepare your vinaigrette in the usual ratio of 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. In addition to the mustard, you can include fresh garlic.
1. Whisk together the vinegar, garlic and mustard.
2. Add the olive oil in a slow stream, continuing to whisk.
3. Add seasonings and adjust as necessary.
