Simple Dijon Vinaigrette 

Ingredients

Directions 

In a small glass pyrex, whisk the white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic. In a thin, steady stream, whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

*you can add fresh herbs to this dressing for extra flavor. My favorite tools for making dressing are 8 inch French whisk, glass pyrex measuring cup, and microplane grader.
