Salads and Dressings

Zesty Dijon Dressing

  • 6 Tablespoons California Olive Ranch Arbequina extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and chopped fine
  • Pinch each of fresh ground black pepper and kosher salt for seasoning

Combine all ingredients except for the oil in a stainless non-reactive bowl.

Whisk to dissolve salt.

Slowly drizzle in olive oil.

Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.

Serve immediately or store chilled.

Chef's Note: This simple to prepare dressing is a spin on the classic vinaigrette. It goes great with salad, but could also be tossed with baby carrots and shallots roasting in the oven, or poured over a sauté of spinach and other greens to make a flavorful cooked dish. It also makes for a wonderful seasoning/marinade for grilled flank steak.
