Basic Vinaigrette

Cuisinart original

Salad dressing is simple to prepare, and much healthier for you than what you could
purchase at the store. This, as the name suggests, is a basic version. Champagne vinegar
is softer in flavor than other vinegars, but you can substitute with white
or red wine vinegar if you prefer.


Makes 1 cup


¼     cup Champagne vinegar
½     small shallot, peeled and halved
1      teaspoon Dijon mustard
½     teaspoon kosher salt
¼     teaspoon ground white pepper
¾     cup extra virgin olive oil
