Memphian Salad Dressing

While my family always used the vinagrette salad dressing reproduced at this site, my maternal grandmother preferred this one. Perhaps it was the relative novelty of it, but while the sour and pungent dressing we normally used is something of a comfort food to me, this recipe always struck me as being somehow more "restaurant" than that one. In any case, this is a good -- and healthy -- dressing.

  • 1 pinch of tarragon
  • 1 pinch of thyme
  • 1 pinch of basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed

Soak tarragon, thyme and basil in vinegar for one hour.

Dissolve salt into the seasoned vinegar.

Add olive oil, dijon mustard, pepper, garlic.

Shake well.
