You don't need to do anything complicated to treat your senses.
But then I couldn't help myself. The next day I took the same four ingredients and added chopped cabbage and lettuce, thinly-sliced celery, and fresh corn shaved from the cob. That was pretty good too. What a salad!
1/4 cup lemon juice (or more, to taste)
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. superfine sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, finely grated
1 Tbs. water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Place all ingredients in a glass jar and seal shut. Shake well until emulsified. Store refrigerated up to 1 week.
