This recipe is from my cookbook "Cooking Thin with Chef Kathleen" written by Chef Kathleen Daelemans. It really is the world's best vinaigrette dressing. I love this on green salads or pasta salads.

Prep:

40 Min

Ingredients

2 clove
garlic, minced (more or less for your personal taste)
1 small
shallot, minced
3 Tbsp
sherry vinegar (best quality you can find, makes a huge difference) you can use balsamic or red wine vinegar (6 or 7 percent acidity), but sherry is the best.
1/2 tsp
coarse-grained salt (sea salt)
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
4 to 5 Tbsp
olive oil
3 Tbsp
flat leaf parsley (rough chopped) or mixed herbs
cracked black pepper to your taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place garlic, shallot, vinegar and salt in a smal bowl and let stand for at least 30 minutes. This will take the peppery bite out of the garlic and shallot.
2
Whisk in mustard, oil and herbs.
3
Add pepper to taste.
4
This is also wonderful as a marinade and served as a dipping sauce for chicken.
