Classic Vinaigrette Sauce

2 T Dijon mustard
1crushed garlic clove
1/4 C wine vinegar
3/4 C olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

With a whisk, combine the mustard, garlic, and vinegar in a mixing bowl. Add oil slowly, whisking all the while. Salt and pepper to taste.

Note: This classic French recipe can be varied a hundred ways. If you are using an herbal vinegar, you can leave out the garlic which would overpower the herb flavors. For a summertime taste treat add 3 tablespoons of a finely chopped fresh herb such as chives, thyme or dill. For fruit salads, use orange or

lemon juice instead of the vinegar (and please leave out the garlic).
