RECIPE: Wild Dijon French dressing

This can be a traditional French dressing made wilder. The truth is, it’s utterly wild and a superb instance of making a tasty French dressing with components sourced from nature.

You may’t discover flavors like this in mass-market merchandise.

For this recipe, I exploit my Stone-Floor Wild Black Mustard made with black mustard seeds, salt that I sourced from Oregon seawater, and olive oil from native “feral” olives. You may create the same French dressing with natural store-bought components.

Substances for a 1⁄4-pint jar (120 ml)

  • 1⁄4 cup (60 ml) Apple Scraps Vinegar , Mugwort Beer Vinegar, or Mountains Vinegar
  • 21⁄2 tablespoons (37 ml) stone-ground black mustard or store-bought Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon (2.5 g) salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) maple syrup
  • 1⁄3 cup (80 ml) olive oil


In a bowl, combine collectively the vinegar, mustard, salt, and maple syrup, then regularly whisk within the olive oil. It’s a lot better when served immediately, however you may as well make sufficient to bottle and retailer within the fridge. You’ll must shake or whisk earlier than serving.

You may simply retailer this French dressing within the fridge for no less than 3 months.
