Leah has been raving about this vinaigrette that her friend, Etty, prepares and serves with steamed green beans. This sauce is the perfect balance of savory and sweet, has a fresh, beautiful green color and creamy texture. This vinaigrette will wow you in its versatility and simplicity.
Whenever I prepare a recipe that has been shared with me for the first time, I follow the recipe exactly and I serve it in the same way it had been served to me. So for this wonderful vinaigrette, I was true to that rule and served it with steamed green beans. I saved a bit to try with some other foods.
I served it with just about everything else I could find.
Here is the sauce that is not just for green beans anymore:
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup wine vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sugar
25 fresh basil leaves
In a food processor fitted with the s-blade, combine ingredients for the vinaigrette. Pulse until smooth.
Decant the dressing into an empty sport-top water bottle or wide-mouth squeeze bottle.
Add a unique label to this Red Grapefruit Vinaigrette. Using glue stick or clear packing tape, adhere a custom basil-dijon-vinaigrette-label to an empty squeeze bottle. If you would like to print your own simpletowow label, feel free print out this basil-dijon-vinaigrette-label. The paper label also allows you to jot down the date when you prepared the dressing so that you can track the preparation date.
