  • 3 teaspoons quality Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons quality apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 medium shallot or whole small shallot (minced)
  • neutral oil or olive oil (a little less than 1/2 cup)
  • sea salt or kosher salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground pepper (to taste)


  1. In a measuring cup with handle, mix the Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar with a small whisk. Slowly add in the oil, a few drops at a time, whisking constantly. It helps to place a towel underneath the measuring cup! Ensure that you fully emulsify (dissolve the liquids and oil to smoothness) the oil before adding much more. Add enough oil to measure 1/2 cup total. Add in the minced shallot and stir.
  2. Add in a few pinches of salt and a bit of freshly ground pepper and taste (try dipping a piece of lettuce in the dressing for a more accurate taste than straight off a spoon). Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve right away or refrigerate up to one week.
