Makes 8 servings
Each serving is 1 ½ servings from the vegetable group and 1 tbsp from the fats group.
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup sunflower oil or other neutral salad oil or light olive oil
24 ounces salad greens
Combine all ingredients except the oil and the greens in a 2 cup jar and shake to blend. Add the oil and shake again to mix ingredients together. Shake well just before serving on clean, dried greens.
If your vinegar is very acidic, you may need to add a small amount of sugar and a tablespoon or so of water.
Plan on using about 3 ounces of cold, dry greens per person for a side salad.
Add leaves of fresh herbs such as tarragon, parsley, oregano cilantro or dill to the greens mix for interesting flavor variations. A little fresh herb goes a long way.
