Homemade Salad Dressing: Tarragon vinaigrette
I bought a bunch of fresh tarragon at the market because I don’t think I’d ever bought fresh tarragon before.
Then it sat in my fridge for a while, making me feel guilty.
In the nick of time I used it in a delicious homemade salad dressing.
Now I can buy fresh tarragon again!
Fresh Tarragon Vinaigrette
What I Changed and Why: Kept the fresh herb to tarragon only to highlight its flavor; Kept the vinegar to just balsamic for simplicity; Adjusted other spices to taste.3 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, finely minced 1/2 Tbsp finely chopped garlic 1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard ½ teaspoon kosher salt ½ teaspoon black pepper, fresh ground 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Salad greens (such as one small head red leaf lettuce)
1. Shake all of the ingredients together in a jar with a tight fitting lid. (If you do not have such a jar then first whisk together all ingredients, adding the fresh herbs at the very end.)
2. Toss the greens & the dressing in a large bowl and plate it.
