Classic salad dressing recipe

Published June 27, 2010 6:28PM (EDT)

(Makes approximately 6 servings.)


  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup best-available olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 garlic clove


  1. Combine all the ingredients except garlic with a whisk.
  2. Rub the cut side of the garlic clove thoroughly around the inside of a wooden salad bowl. (Note: this will only use up a small portion of the clove.) If you are using a glass or ceramic bowl, the surface will be too smooth to attract the garlic. In this case mince 1/4 to 1/2 of a clove and add it directly to the dressing.
