I grow herbs. I love growing fresh herbs and walking out and cutting what I need for a particular recipe. Fresh basil, fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, drizzled with olive oil, the best summer salad.
I made this fresh herb vinaigrette and had all the herbs right out in my herb garden. YEA! And it was so good. If you are a fan of vinaigrette dressings, you will like this.
Fresh Herb Vinaigrette
3/4 cup white wine vinegar (i believe it would be just as good if you used apple cider vinegar)
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons sugar (use Splenda if you are so inclined and a little more if you lean on the sweeter side))
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra-light olive oil
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
1 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
1 Tbsp choped fresh thyme
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, salt, garlic powder, and pepper, whisking until sugar dissolves. In a slow stream, gradually add olive oil, whisking to combine well. stir in parsley, oregano, tarragon, thyme, and basil.
I store mine in a mason jar (what else?) so that all I have to do is shake well before using.
Sure is good! Give it a try. Would be a good marinade for chicken or pork before grilling, also.
