Nora Ephron Salad Dressing

Nora Ephron gives this simple recipe in her novel Heartburn. Easy and good.

The Recipe


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

Variations (not in Nora Ephron's book):
  1. It works fine just to put all ingredients in a jar and shake.
  2. Make a quadruple recipe and store in refrigerator. Keeps well.
  3. Use less mustard. (I usually use less than 1 tablespoon.)
  4. Add salt.
  5. Add garlic granules.
  6. Add herbs, etc. etc. in addition to or instead of mustard.
