RECIPE

DIJON-HERB VINAIGRETTE

Craft a delicious summer salad for a light lunch or supper starter this week with fabulous produce from Old Beach, including arugula, herbs and tomatoes from New Earth Farm. And top that salad with my Delish Dijon-Herb Vinaigrette; here’s how to make it.

 

In a mason jar, add 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup champagne vinegar, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, and a generous pinch of coarse salt and freshly ground white pepper. Cover and shake vigorously. Add 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped herbs, stir to incorporate, and serve immediately.

Makes 1 cup
