Adapted from my mother's off the cuff recipe. there's never any reason to buy salad dressing - none can match home-made!
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup olive oil
1-2 tablespoons water
1/2 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients except the oil.
2. Add the oil and whisk vigorously to make an emulsion. Sprinkle over salad and enjoy!
