- ¼ cup red wine vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Salt and Pepper
- ¾ cup olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons green onions (or shallots)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon sugar or sugar substitute
- Butter Lettuce
- Red, Orange and Yellow Bell Peppers, sliced
- Broccoli, cut into ½" pieces

- Green beans

- Whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Add oil in a slow stream while whisking to emulsify. Add the green onions or shallots and garlic. Mix dressing into the salad until well covered and serve the remaining dressing on the side.
- Add vegetables, nuts, and seeds in proportion to your taste.
- One of the secrets of a great salad is the temperature. It tastes better when it's cold and crisp and when the dressing's already blended into the ingredients.
