Honey Mustard Vinaigrette for a Crowd

“Also from Moosewood's book. Easy and simple. Could also be used as a marinade for fish. I plan to use for a simple, crisp green salad, with some apple and cucumber thrown in. You can make this quite a ways in advance.”

  1. In a mixing bowl (or your food processor), whisk together the vinegar and mustard. You can adjust the vinegar as desired -- ie, if you prefer less tart dressing, slightly reduce the amount of vinegar and increase the mustard.
  2. If you're using creamed honey, you'll have to warm it up to liquify it -- then allow it to cool a bit. In a slow drizzle, whisk in the honey to the vinegar/mustard mixture.
  3. Whisk in the oil, also in a slow drizzle. You can adjust the oil at this point as well, adding about 3 1/2 cups then tasting and adjusting to your preference.
  4. Add salt to taste and freshly ground pepper.
