This garlicky mustard vinaigrette is great to have in your repertoire as it goes with almost anything. The recipe makes plenty so you can fix it once and then have it on hand for several days. The garlic is delicious but bold here; use fewer cloves if you want to tone it down.

Add herbs & honey for even better version! This is a go-to dressing recipe that is awesome. I make it using champagne vinegar, a little fresh herbs (whatever I have lying around) and some honey for an even more flavorful version.

Great basic dressing. Any type mustard could be used. Easy great tasting low calorie dressing. Could use different types of mustards and vinegars. Pros: Super simple to make in a food processor. Makes enough to last all week! Cons: A bit to oily. Next time I will use slightly under 1/2 cup of olive oil

Very tart and tangy - made 1/2 the recipe as is plus added 1 TBS honey making the dressing a bit creamy and smoother. Much better.

Easy and tasty I made this and we love the taste. We wanted something a little thicker to top our eggs with, so I added low fat mayonnaise to a small amount. Perfect! We can now have healthier 'dijonaisse' or vinaigrette whenever we like. So much better than buttery sauces. Plenty good enough for us! Pros: Keeps for several days, easy converted to a thicker sauce.

Not Proportional I made this exactly according to the recipe and I found it acceptable, but too much vinegar and lemon juice in proportion to the olive oil. Also, mine does not look anything like the picture on the website. I found I had to divide this in half and add some more more olive oil (and a touch of maple syrup). Pros: Healthy Cons: Too vinegary
