Spring into Green with Champagne Vinaigrette

Champagne Vinaigrette

Trish, my friend  and Spicy Beer Mustard Maven experimented with recipes for vinaigrette by blending Spicy Beer Mustard into her vinaigrette recipe.  Her experiments culminated in a rich and delicious Champagne Vinaigrette.  When she described the earthy flavors and multi-uses for the vinaigrette,  I invited her to share the recipe with us.  Trish has given us instructions to blend our own delicate and versatile vinaigrette.

Spicy Beer Mustard adds sweet tones that mellow the acid in the vinegar.  I’ve caught myself sipping it from the spoon.  Thank you, Trish!

The Trinity – Spicy Beer Mustard, Champagne Vinegar, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Champagne Vinaigrette

What You'll Need:

  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard
  • ¼ cup Champagne vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

How To Prepare:

  • Whisk together the garlic, Spicy Beer Mustard, Champagne vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Drizzle the olive oil slowly into the mustard and vinegar mixture and whisk until fully emulsified.  If you like more sweetness in the dressing, drizzle in additional honey..

The vinaigrette adds loads of flavor to asparagus, and I like it as dip for a fresh carrot strip or a stick of cucumber and maybe a garden green bean..  Last weekend  I  welcomed the sight of Heirloom tomatoes in the grocery store looking vibrant in purple and red, and plump with juice.  Add fresh romaine,  a thin slice of  radish, avocado,  croutons, and I felt as though spring finally arrived!   Mix Trish’s Champagne Vinaigrette recipe, roam the fresh vegetable isle, and hear the fresh veggies singing the Spring song!
