Fresh Herb Vinaigrette

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.
