How To Make Salad Dressing

A basic Dijon vinaigrette, like the one that’s mixed up in this video, can be used for up to three weeks after making.

What You Need:

shakable dressing container, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, freshly-ground pepper, tablespoon, teaspoon

Follow These Six Easy Steps:

  1. Step 11Find and clean a reusable container

    If you don’t have a traditional dressing shaker, a mason jar or a peanut butter jar work just as well.

  2. Step 22Add 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  3. Step 33Add 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

  4. Step 44Add 6 teaspoons olive oil

    The ratio of oil to vinegar should be 3:1.

  5. Step 55Add salt and pepper to taste

    A pinch of Kosher salt and of freshly-ground pepper should do the trick.

  6. Step 66Shake to combine

    Serve or refrigerate.

    Aha! The olive oil will solidify, so be sure to set the dressing out at room temperature about an hour before you want to serve it or run the container under hot water.
