Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a container for an immersion blender, or the bowl of a food processor put the vinegar, garlic, shallots, mustard, and honey together. A blender works fine; if you don't have any of these, chop the garlic and shallots very finely (mince.)
  • Process until a smooth paste is formed,
  • slowly drizzle the oil in while the machine is running until all of the oil is added. The consistency should be nice and creamy, not too thick. If mixing by hand, drizzle the oil in while stirring with a whisk.
  • The dressing should not separate. In the event that it does separate, simply stir it back together again. The reason it may separate is that the oil didn't get emulsified well enough -- this is on the border of being a vinaigrette, so there is a chance that the oil may separate -- this does not change the flavor.

    Vickie is so right - nothing beats a homemade dressing, and we eat a lot of salads, so this is another I have to make this week...very tasty sounding.

    I'll be using this regularly. I love making dressings at home - they are SO much better than commercial brands. Love it! Thanks, Ray Snuggle Bunny.... ;-)~ Vickie

    Hi Ray!
    Fabulous pic of your beautiful little girl! I can see why she has you (not?) wrapped around your little finger!! This dressing sounds really good. Have you tried this with Sherry wine vinegar? Would it work? Or, do you have another recipe for that? Had a great Mediterranean Salad at a local restaurant and it had a sherry/Dijon vinaigrette on it. Yum. Been looking for just the right dressing to make it. Let me know what you think.
    Thanks Bud,
    Betty

    I made this and used it on the White Bean and Chicken Salad recipe that I have posted here. It was delicious. Very creamy. I think I will be using it every time I make this salad now instead of the dressing recipe that came with it. Thank you.

    I like the idea of making it in the processor, kind of like making mayo. Can't wait to try it.
    Thanks! Viktoria

    I'm going to have to try this. I like the idea of making my own dressing - just the amount I need. Instead of having 14 bottles of half used dressing in the fridge!
