Mustard Seed-Chive Vinaigrette

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Jan Gautro
Yield 1/3 cup (serving size: about 1 tablespoon)
We like this vinaigrette drizzled over gourmet salad greens, but it would also pair well with salmon. Olives—and their oil—offer heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon country-style Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
