How to make vinaigrette

How to make classic French salad dressing.

Points to remember

  • Whisk mustard and vinegar together with seasoning.
  • Whisk in oil and a drop of water to soften the acidity.
  • If not using straight away, store in a jar and shake to recombine before use.

Use 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar – you can use a combination of different oils, vinegars and mustards but following this ratio will always make a well-balanced dressing.
