Dijon Italian Dressing is so easy to whip together!
I usually don’t write down my famous (LOL)Italian Salad Dressing but I made an exception this time. Thought I better start writing these things down before I get to old to remember what I did, LOL!
You start with these ingredients:
Olive Oil (you can use any oil you have on hand)
White Balsamic Vinegar… In this house we don’t like dressing to tangy so I used 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar to 1/2 cup olive oil. Of course, you can adjust this to taste. If it’s still makes you pucker up and squint then add more oil.
Dijon Mustard (I use Koops) It’s organic, easy to find and Whole 30 Approved!
Fresh Rosemary and thyme (from my garden)
The secret ingredient…green olive juice (can be added in any amount your taste buds prefer)
You pretty much blend everything up in a single serve blender and let it sit in the fridge until you’re ready to use it! Made with fresh, organic ingredients you can both pronounce and spell!! Win, Win!!
