New Salad Dressing–Pollan Family Table

IMG_6099 IMG_6093IMG_1488 IMG_6094 I am in love with this new cookbook “The Pollan Family Table” . If you’re in the market for a new cookbook I highly recommend it. I made the “Pollan Signature Salad Dressing” tonight and it is delicious. Here is the recipe for the dressing, I used greens, candied walnuts and pears and shaved parmesan.  You can use it on any salad you like. You’ll need a tight-fitting jar or another jar that you can keep dressing in. I also did it in a blender but you can use a bowl and whisk it together and use right away. I was making it for later and I like the way a blender emulsifies the dressing . I love a Ball Bell Jar to store dressing in.

Thank You to the Pollan Family for the cookbook and the recipes. This is what I did .

This is known as their “Signature Salad Recipe” if you go to the book.


1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon champagne vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard

1/3 cup grape seed oil

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Kosher Salt/Sea Salt whichever you have

Freshly Ground Black Pepper


I did it in a blender but if you’d like you can use a small mixing bowl. Combine the vinegars, mustard, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, and a few grinds of the pepper mill. I turned on the blender and slowly added the oils in through the top to emulsify. If you’re using a bowl just whisk vigorously.

That’s it! just taste for salt and pepper before serving.

    Let’s lighten it up after all that Holiday food over the weekend. Here is a delicious light salad dressing served over any salad you like with some protein is a perfect way to start the week. Even though I am unable to cook for the next few weeks due to shoulder surgery I will re-blog some of the recipes that I would be cooking around now. Enjoy it for me!
