This easy-to-make vinaigrette is flavoured with fresh garlic, tarragon, mustard seed and celery seed. During the summer, I use 2 teaspoons of fresh tarragon instead of dried.

I think this recipe is fantastic with one big alteration - add NO water. It tastes great without it and it becomes way too watery with the water. This is one of my staple dressings.-01 Oct 2011

This dressing was the perfect complement to a salad of mixed spring greens & endive, chopped beets and feta cheese. Perfect balance of sweet, salty and bitter. Thanks, Falvor King!-25 Feb 2010
