Servings: 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 cup herb vinegar (your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (peel), grated
  • 1 cup olive oil or canola oil
  1. In a medium-size bowl or food processor, whisk together herb vinegar, sugar, honey, salt, celery seed, dry mustard, and lemon zest.

  2. Add oil in a thin stream, whisking until emulsified.  By gradually whisking or blending the oil into the vinegar, you create an emulsion (a mixture of two liquids that usually don't combine smoothly).

  3. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.  Serve at room temperature.
