This is a really handy variation on a plain French vinaigrette. It is particularly good for poached or steamed vegetables. Be sure to have a good quality sherry vinegar. Try this with steamed artichokes or grilled asparagus, Its great with grilled chicken or on sauteed potatoes.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium tomato seed removed, chopped in small cubes.
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar good quality
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 large pinch salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil good quality
  • 4 tbsp veg or any light oil

Instructions
 

  • In a small mixing bowl place the vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk it all together.
  • Pour the olive oil and vegetable oil in a thin stream while whisking all the time into the vinegar and mustard mixture. You are trying to make an emulsion like a very thin mayonnaise.
  • Take the tomatoes that you have cubed and very lightly crush them with the back of a fork.
  • Add them and their liquid to the vinaigrette mixture. Thin the sauce with a few drops of water if the vinaigrette is too thick and let set for about a half hour.
  • Then use over cooked, or steamed vegetables of your choice or a very hearty salad that will stand up to the strong taste of the sherry vinegar.

Notes

This is a very useful little salad dressing and can be used for a lot of different things. I like this over poached, chilled fresh asparagus or artichokes, the red flecks of tomato give it a very pretty look on the plate.
It is very good for using over many grilled vegetables such as zucchini, roasted peppers and can be used over warm new potatoes and in potato salad. You can of course leave out the chopped tomatoes and use it on salads with tomatoes. I would even use this over or with a bit of grilled fish or chicken.You decide, keep in mind that sherry vinegar comes in many qualities, ask about it where you purchase your cooking supplies. It also has a very particular flavor that you wouldn't want to use if you wanted a very delicate vinaigrette on boston lettuce (blad salad in Swedish).

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
