    Default Secret Ingredient in a Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette

    There are a million recipes out there for French Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette, but I found one the other day that added a little bit of finely, minced mint to it just before serving. OMG! It took it to a whole other level!!!

    Thanks, Sally! I appreciate that.

    My recipe changes all of the time. Here are the basic ingredients. I adjust them to taste.

    Olive Oil
    White wine, or apple peel vinegar
    honey
    finely minced onion
    capers
    lemon zest
    lemon juice
    salt
    pepper

    and now, mint!

    The general ratios are about 40% sour elements to 60% good, olive oil. You can add other, finely chopped herbs s/a tarragon, thyme, chives, etc. It's up to you. Keep adjusting the ingredients until it tastes just right...not too tart, but still some zip in it.
