This tangy mustard vinaigrette is enlivened by hints of wine, garlic and onion flavors.
Wow! This has to be one of the best dressings I've made on this site and I've made a lot. My husband who only likes corn as his vegetable of choice (unless forced to eat something else) and if I do manage to get him to eat a salad his first response for a dressing is "ranch" as if it's the only kind ever made. Well, we have a winner because he not only tried it, but ate an entire bowl of salad plus asked for more and declared it a keeper. I did use 1/2 c. olive oil and 1/4 c. veg. oil (basically switching them) omitted the garlic salt and used 1-2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 tsp. of onion powder and added a bit of sugar until I got the desired sweetness. I would suggest a name change for this one to get more people to try it "Mustard Oil Dressing" is not nearly as appealing as "Dijon Vinaigrette". - 22 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
i left out the onion powder and garlic salt and added freshly chopped herbs instead.its very similar to one that my mother used to make.Very easy! - 24 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is wonderful but using powdered garlic and onion instaead of fresh deserves 4 starts. Grate onion from your grater and dice garlic for a much more flavorful taste, I make this all the time. I also never buy salad dressings and make all dressings from scratch and people talk about them all the time. Once you master the basics you will always be able to create a dressing not only for salads but many other dishes. If I could share my recipes I would but I do not measure anything because once you know the ratio's it is very very easy. - 23 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
