Walnut Dressing

I use best-quality walnut oils found in upscale markets and kitchen supply stores for this dressing. They pack an intense nutty flavor not found in the pale, bland supermarket varities.


Directions   Print recipe     Email to a friend

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 cup walnut oil*
1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
*Store all opened bottles of nut oils in the refrigerator or they will go rancid quickly.

1. Combine the vinegar, mustard, and garlic in a small mixing bowl.

2. Add the oil in a thin, steady stream while whiking the mixture vigorously.

3. Add the chili, salt, and pepper and whisk.

4. Refrigerate several hours so that the flavors meld.



Preparation Time: 
5 minutes, plus several hours down time.
