Wine and Citrus Vinaigrette
Lemony, winey (probably not a word) and slightly sweet: This vinaigrette has it going on. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can use homemade red wine. In fact, the recipe we tested called for homemade wine. Not having any on hand, we substituted a nice bottle of red we bought at the grocery store, instead.
- 1/2 cup red wine
- 1/4 cup red or white wine vinegar
- juice and zest from one lemon
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 T. salt
- 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp. sugar or honey
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
In a bowl, whisk together wine, vinegar, lemon juice and zest, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, and sugar or honey. Continue whisking as you drizzle in olive oil. Toss with fresh mixed salad greens and serve immediately. Makes about 2 cups.
