Master the Art of French Salad Dressing with this Quick and Easy Recipe

French salad dressing

Transform your everyday salads into something special with this quick and easy French bistro-inspired salad dressing recipe. This recipe is a tribute to the puckery, mustard-based dressing that my mother learned while studying in Paris, similar to the dressings served at bistros across France. With just a few ingredients and a microwave, you can create a flavorful, emulsified dressing that will take your salads to the next level.

The star ingredient of this recipe is a finely minced shallot, which is poached in olive oil in the microwave to soften and flavor the oil. A good-quality vinegar, such as red wine or aged Banyuls, adds a tart note to the dressing, while Dijon mustard emulsifies the mixture and adds a smooth, creamy texture. Simply season with salt and pepper to taste, and you're ready to enjoy your homemade dressing.

Not only is this dressing quick and easy to make, but it can also be customized to suit your preferences. Substitute red onion for shallots, experiment with different vinegars, or adjust the proportions of the ingredients to create the perfect balance of flavors.

This recipe yields about 1 cup of dressing, which is enough for a few salads and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. So, why settle for boring store-bought dressings when you can whip up a delicious homemade dressing in just 2 minutes? Try this recipe today and elevate your salads to a whole new level.
