Salads are a great way to diversify the range of vegetables you eat (besides being low fat and stuff). Keep it healthy by ditching the creamy ranch dressing and use this vinaigrette instead.
Makes ~4 servings
- 1 minced shallot
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- optional: 1-2 tbsp of your favorite chopped herbs (I love dill!)
- fresh arugula/lettuce/general purpose vegetables
Combine everything (minus the salad part) in a jar. Shake it up. Toss with your vegetables!
