My Go-To Vinaigrette

The following two tabs change content below.
I'm Erin Allmann. I love family, friends and food. A lot. I live in a teeny, tiny apartment in a place called Paradise with a wonderful boyfriend named Brett who cooks much better than I do. We both happen to be fantastic at eating and whenever we're not doing so, (which isn't all that often), we try to stay occupied outdoors. We're also two of the biggest nerds you can ever find, so excuse the occasional o-chem, bio, Harry Potter, or Star Wars reference.

People, this might not be the most exciting of all recipes. But wait! Don’t leave yet! Just because it’s not exciting, doesn’t mean you won’t love it! Look. This is the one and only vinaigrette you’ll ever need. It is literally the only one I ever make because a) it seriously doesn’t get any easier, b) it tastes awesome on everything, c) you already have everything you need in your cupboards and d), did I mention it’s delicious?

Here’s all that you need:

Balsamic vinegar, Olive oil, Salt and pepper, Dijon mustard.

Here’s what you do: Combine everything in a short cup and blend. That’s it. I use one squirt of mustard if I’m making dressing for just one big ol’ salad, plus several glugs of vinegar and half as much oil. Salt and pepper to taste. It’s not a science and it never comes out the same way twice. But it’s always awesome.
