Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced shallot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch sugar, optional, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup canola oil (or mix of canola and extra-virgin olive oil)

Directions

  1. Combine everything but the oil and sugar in a bowl and let sit for 20 minutes.
  2. Taste the vinegar mixture. It will be sour, but if it feels harsh, add a pinch of sugar.
  3. Whisk the vinegar vigorously and pour the oil in thin stream. Alternatively, shake it all together in a jar with a lid, or zap it all in a blender or food processor.
  4. The vinaigrette will eventually separate; just re-whisk or shake before using.
