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.

My Valentine will begin his day with a breakfast treat.
This not-too-sweet scone is filled with dried cherries, sprinkled with chopped almonds then drizzled with a confectioner's glaze.
