1/2 c. Gala Apple Balsamic
1-2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 garlic cloves, minced
generous pinch of sea salt and black pepper
2 Tbsp. fresh herbs or 2 tsp. dried (basil, oregano, chives, and thyme are all nice)
1 1/2 c. Mild Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or try Basil or Tuscan Herb and then leave out the fresh herbs)
Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a jar. Stir well with a fork. Add olive oil, cover tightly, and shake well until combined. You can also use a blender and drizzle the oil in slowly while it is running. Serve over your basic green salad with added chopped vegetables.
Note: We tossed bread cubes in the mixture and baked at 350 for 10 minutes or until crunchy. They were delicious home-made croutons that are healthy.
