1/2 teaspoon sugar
90 ml olive oil
1/2 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh herb mixture, such as parsley, chervil, basil, tarragon, chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 teaspoons wine vinegar
A pinch pepper
* Put salt, pepper, mustard, sugar, herb mixture and vinegar into a bowl and stir together until salt and sugar have dissolved.
* Pour in oil and whisk with a fork to combine well.
* Alternatively place ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake well until blended.
NOTE: It makes about 125 ml.
NOTE: Use less oil if a sharper dressing is preferred. Use cider or herb flavoured vinegar, or subsitute lemon juice for the wine vinegar.
