A favorite salad dressing that is always in my refrigerator is Tarragon Balsamic Dressing. It’s versatile and can be used on mixed greens or even just a sliced tomato salad.

From the kitchen of A Food Lover’s Delight….
Tarragon Balsamic Dressing
3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. honey
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbs. canola oil
1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh tarragon
1 minced garlic clove
Salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, mustard, and honey. Add the extra-virgin olive and canola oils. Add the chopped tarragon and minced garlic clove. Whisk the dressing until smooth and well-blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Variations: Substitute country dijon mustard for the regular dijon mustard. Substitute fresh basil, chives, thyme or other fresh herbs for the fresh tarragon. Substitute sugar or agave syrup for the honey.
I keep this dressing on-hand for daily use. Make double or triple portions if it’s popular in your household.
Lasts about a week or so covered in the fridge. You can use a glass jar as the mixing and storage container.
