My daughter interned at Nordstrom for a summer and often ate at the Nordstrom Cafe for lunch. They have great food in case you haven’t been. They also have three cookbooks for sale in the store that are filled with great recipes. One we’ve tried and love is the Champagne Vinaigrette. It’s light and delicious and makes the lettuce leaves look glossy.
In my next post, I’ll give you some ideas for suggestions for salad ingredients that work well with this dressing.
This recipes makes 2 cups, so I included the half recipe, too.
Nordstrom Champagne Vinaigrette
1 tablespoon shallot (can put whole shallot and whole garlic in food processor), chopped
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 cup champagne wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper (I use Black)
1 1/2 teaspoons shallot (can put whole shallot and whole garlic in food processor), chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 cup champagne wine vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon+ salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. In a food processor, add all ingredients. **You can add whole garlic cloves and whole or cut shallots and it will get chopped into the dressing.
