mixed greens with creamy mustard vinaigrette
 
 
Ingredients
  • mixed greens and other greens such as arugula, spinach and romaine lettuce - I like to use a combination of mixed greens, romaine lettuce that has been sliced up thin, as well as extra arugula.
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon (about 1 large clove or 2 small cloves) minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt - the original recipe called for ¾ teaspoons salt, so feel free to add more if you want.
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl or glass mason jar, whisk together the Champagne vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.
  2. While whisking, slowly add in the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
  3. Use the dressing now or cover and store it in the refrigerator. This dressing will last 2 days. Make sure to shake or whisk it well before using.
  4. Let's prep for salad. Get out a large salad bowl and toss in your mixed greens. Thinly slice and add in the romaine lettuce. I prefer to chop up my romaine lettuce rather than tear it up because to me it's just easier, and the leaves are more uniform in size.
  5. Dice up the red pepper and avocado and chop up the tomato. Feel free to add some thinly sliced red onion, radishes as well as cucumber. Really, make this your own salad and toss in whatever greens and veggies you want!
  6. This dressing will last 2 days. Make sure to shake or whisk it well before using.
