Red Wine Vinaigrette

Red Wine Vinaigrette


This is one of the best salad dressings that deserves a constant position in your fridge. But for this dressing you absolutely must use Dijon mustard – under no circumstance must you replace with whole grain or the plastic stuff that you squeeze out of a tube.

This is a dressing that is slightly on the sour side but perfect with fleshy avocado and medley of greens.

Simple, perfect and delicious!
