Nora Ephron Salad Dressing

Nora Ephron Salad Dressing

Nora Ephron gives this simple recipe in her novel Heartburn. Easy and good.
Course Salad, Sauce


  • 2 T. dijon mustard
  • 2 T. red wine vinegar
  • 6 T. olive oil


  • Combine mustard and vinegar.
  • Slowly pour in oil and wisk till smooth and creamy.
  • Shake before using.

Variations (not in Nora Ephron's book):

  • It works fine just to put all ingredients in a jar and shake.
  • Make a quadruple recipe and store in refrigerator. Keeps well.
  • Use less mustard. (I usually use less than 1 tablespoon.)
  • Add salt.
  • Add garlic granules.
  • Add herbs, etc. etc. in addition to or instead of mustard.
