Put the vinegar, mustard, shallot, salt and pepperinto a Cuisinart® blender jar. Blend on Low until processed. Slowly add the oil through the opening while running on Low (hold the cap or even a dishtowel in place over opening to prevent any splattering).

Let mixture blend an additional 20 seconds after all the oil has
been added.

Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
