A lovely salad and dressing from Ellen Pope.



  1. In bottom of salad bowl, stir shallot/garlic, mustard, salt & pepper together with wooden spoon. Add vinegar and stir until combined well. Add oil in a stream, stirring constantly until dressing is emulsified (mustard and salt aid in emulsification). Taste and tweak to your liking. Add salad greens and toss just before serving.
  2. Variation: for a fall salad, pair bitter greens (radicchio, endive, arugula) with sliced pears, walnuts and cooked beets and substitute walnut oil for the olive oil.
