  • 1 small shallot

  • 1 T dijon mustard

  • 1 T portoula pine honey

  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2/3 cup extra virgin Greek olive oil


  • Put all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake well. Alternatively, whisk all ingredients except the oil in a small bowl - then slowly whisk in the oil.


  • You can make so many variations of this simple vinaigrette by using different vinegars, mustards, honey varieties (like fir and oak), and fresh herbs.
