Champagne Vinaigrette

No need to brace yourself for a loud popping sound. This champagne vinaigrette is made with champagne vinegar, a light-colored and crisp-flavored vinegar that’s slightly reminiscent of real champagne and makes a refreshing substitute for white wine vinegar in recipes. Whisk in pure, extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and a dash of Dijon mustard for a flavorful gourmet dressing that can be stored in your refrigerator for up to a week. Bon appétit!
