March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (38 votes)

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.

"followed the recipe exactly and loved the dressing, even my kids loved it! Great as a dipping sauce for artisan bread as well. "
