My Grandma's Vinaigrette

This is a French style vinaigrette that is so perfect for a mixed greens salad with some slivered almonds, dried cranberries, and chèvre crumbles.

  • 1/2 c white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or good quality vegetable oil
  • 1 clove peeled garlic
  • 1 rounded tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 scant tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried parlsey
  • splash of water
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Put all of the ingredients into a blender, food processor, or magic bullet, and pulse until combined. Alternatively, mince garlic and add vinegar and all other ingredients except oil to a dressing shaker, add the oil, and shake until blended. Store, covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.
