I have made this French dressing so many times. Me & my husband love it. You were right, no more shop bought French dressing for us.

Great recipe, really easy and definitely jazzes up a boring salad.

Thanks for the great feedback. I also vary this by using lemon juice in place of white wine vinegar and wholegrain mustard instead of dijon. This version is great with fish or over new potatoes as a potato salad dressing

Very quick to make and really lovely. I also added some wholegrain mustard which added a nice texture.

I've just made this (using rapeseed oil rather than groundnut oil) and it is delicious. I would definitely use this rather than buy a french dressing.

Lovely! We live in France and this is even better than the shop-bought dressing here!
