1 clove garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons hazelnut oil*
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* Hazelnut Oil is a nut oil that has been extracted from roasted hazelnuts. Did you know that hazelnuts are also know as filberts. It's taste is similar to roasted hazelnuts. In fact, this is one of my favorite oils to use.
Many top chefs are choosing to include hazelnuts in more and more recipes and dishes because of their excellent flavor and health value. Hazelnut cooking oil has a similar composition to extra virgin olive oil with high content in Omega 9 and Omega 6 fatty acid.
In a blender or food processor, mince the garlic. Add salt and Dijon mustard; whirl drizzling in raspberry vinegar, honey, hazelnut oil, and olive oil.
By gradually whisking or blending the oil into the vinegar, you create an emulsion (a mixture of two liquids that usually do not combine smoothly.)
Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.
