ISO Mustard vinaigrette

I tried using the search option and came across a few that (I think) is honey based. I am thinking more on the lines of a salad dressing similiar to Outback's mustard vinaigrette instead of Outback's honey mustard dressing. For all I know they both have honey but I don't believe the one I want is as sweet or thick. Thanks for any help!

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for but it is kind of a standard 1,2,3, dressing.

1 T red wine vinegar
2 T Dijon mustard
3 T canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste.

Play with the amount of vinegar and oil to suit your tastes. You can swap out the vinegar for lemon juice and or swap out the canola oil for olive oil. Swap out the Dijon for a grainy mustard. Also add various herbs or onion. Like I said it is kind of a basic starting point.

And don't anticipate there being a problem with it being thick. It's likely that the restaurant variety has gar gum or some kind of starch thickener. The 3:1 oil to vinegar ration is a standard, but you can vary that without any serious consequence, if you want to reduce the oil.

One hint is that if you find yourself with a jar of used up Dijon, that you're about to toss, put the vinegar in it, give it some shakes, add the other ingredients. The way to use up the last dribs and drabs of stuff.

One great thing about salad dressings is that they're so cheap to experiment, so little labor and materials investment that you can just try a new recipe every night, in very few minutes. My own recipe is that whenever I get tired of bottle dressing I just throw together whatever I see in my fridge. Of course there's always garlic.

Excellent advice!

Three other things to experiment with: a touch of garlic, a pinch of sugar and a hit of soy sauce. Oh and white wine vinegar.

Ginger...curry...lots of things. DILL~~~but that is Scandinavian. 3-2-1 marinade. 3 T vinegar, 2 T mustard, 1 T sweetener (maple syrup, sugar, etc,). Add some oil to make it a salad dressing.

You just had to go and remind me that Scandinavians like to put that grocery store curry powder in lots of things didn't you. Yuck.

Oh--but I get curry powder in exchange for eggs from a friend married to a guy from India...best curry powder, not that grocery store stuff!
