Dijon Vinaigrette

 

  • 1 Mason Jar (1 quart)
  • 1 large thinly sliced shallot
  • 1  1/2 cups white wine vinegar
  • Black pepper freshly ground 1/8 cup (30-40 turns)
  • Salt (a teaspoon)
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teas honey


     Put all in the jar, seal tightly, and give a shake to emulsify the oil with the rest of the ingredients.  This vinaigrette should pretty much stay emulsified if mixed thoroughly. Best to let sit overnight and allow the flavors to blend. An excellent all around vinaigrette to always have on hand.  It's one of our staples. Inspired  by Chef Pepin
