Wolfgang Puck's Spago House Dressing

An easy salad of spring greens, grape tomatoes, thinly sliced zucchini and shaved cheese comes to life with the sophisticated flavor of a dressing from Wolfgang Puck.
Put it together in a few minutes!
Wolfgang Puck's Spago House Dressing
From the kitchen of Wolfgang Puck

Difficulty: Easy

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 small shallot, minced
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup walnut oil*
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper


In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic and sherry or red wine vinegars, the Dijon mustard, minced shallot and minced thyme. Slowly whisk in the oils and when emulsified, season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate in a covered container. It will keep for three weeks to four weeks. When ready to use, whisk again.

*Recipe Note:  My husband has a dislike of walnuts so I did not use the walnut oil but rather used all olive oil.

This is something I must try!
I eat salad every day (can't go without it), and I like to change the dressing every now and then.
Your dressing sounds like the kind I would LOVE

Hi Lorraine,
I made this salad tonight for a dinner party. It was so easy and everybody loved it. I especially liked using the zucchini and the dressing is/was the perfect final touch.

Beth said...

What a perfect salad! Mustard-based dressings are my favorites, and I like just about anything on arugula.

Funny thing, I've been eating salads like they're going out of style, all winter long.
Very nice vinaigrette!
