1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil (for a stronger flavor) or use other type of oil depending on tastes. ¼ cup of red wine vinegar 1 Tablespoon of Dijon mustard 1 clove of garlic pressed Salt and pepper to taste ½ tsp of sweet basil or Italian herbs or for a different twist Provence mix of herbs.
Combine ingredients in a covered jar and shake to blend. This can be mixed with a hand blender or a whisk noting that using good olive oil will make a nice thick and creamy dressing. For those who like Dijon, add more than one Tbs.
