French Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette

By Andrew Zimmern

Famed French chef Pierre Gagnaire taught me how to make his grandmother’s classic mustard vinaigrette while I was filming an episode of Bizarre Foods in his Paris restaurant. Make a big batch of the dressing base without cream and store it in the fridge to prolong its shelf life, adding cream as you need it. It’s great on a frisee salad or pour it over chicken as it comes off the grill—it’ll change your cooking life.


Whisk together all of the ingredients, making sure everything is well blended. Adjust for seasoning and serve.
