Champagne Vinaigrette

I know it has been a long sleepless night for so many wondering how Mr. C got along with his new sled.  Okay, maybe not but I thought I would let you know that it was a huge success.  He claimed it to be the fastest sled he has ever been on.  I think this picture says it all.  And not only did Mr. C love his sled but he found it to so much more fun to ride it with his little sister.  That right there just warms my heart. 🙂

I thought since I tempted your will power with Double Chocolate Loaf yesterday, I would give you a promised recipe. If you remember a few weeks ago I posted this Crispy Pasta Cakes with Red Pepper and Mozzarella Salad. And if you also remember I promised to post this amazing dressing that pairs perfectly with that salad. Well, life happens and things don’t always go as planned, but now I am making good on my promise and so here it is…

Champagne Vinaigrette


2 cloves garlic
1 Tbls. kosher salt
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil


Using the back of a knife make a paste with the garlic and kosher salt.  {Keep working it, the salt will soften the garlic.}  Whisk together the champagne vinegar and Dijon mustard.  Add the garlic paste to the vinegar along with the black pepper.  Slowly add the olive oil whisking as you pour.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Shake before pouring.
