I enjoy writing these week-end simple posts; while the suggestions are French-inspired, they are easy things that anyone can do here at home in the US.
This weekend's weather is unpredictable, so I'd like to suggest something that you could enjoy indoors or out: an authentic French vinaigrette.
There are so many recipes for vinaigrettes, and they're all a variation on the same ingredients. If you don't have a recipe, you might want to try this one by David Lebovitz.
My recipe calls for just five ingredients: vinegar, oil, shallots, Dijon mustard, and salt. Taken alone these ingredients aren't so sexy, but when married they create a perfect culinary union. This weekend I'll be drizzling vinaigrette on some tender spring asparagus. Et toi?
