Strawberry Vinaigrette

Wash and spin some fresh lettuce(I like the crunchy hearts) and chill in fridge under a damp towel.


In a nice big bowl, put:


                                    7 sliced strawberries

                                    1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

                                    1 egg yolk

                                    a splash and a half cider vinegar

                                    juice of two blood oranges

                                    a dollop of honey

                                    salt and pepper

                                    1 toe of garlic, chopped

                                     1 finely sliced scallion


Abuse this mixture with the back of a large wooden spoon. Further coax it into submission with a wire whip.

Taste it. Need salt and pepper? Need vinegar? Need honey? Okay.

Fit the bowl into a rolled towel formed into a loose donut.

Slowly drizzle good vegetable oil into the bowl while whisking vigorously. Keep it moving. You are incorporating air, so your strokes should find noisy purchase on the sides of the bowl. This makes bubbles. Good thing.

Periodically stop drizzling but don't stop whisking. Whisk. Whisk.

Need more oil? Add it. Taste it...

Look for a velvety sheen.

Toss with lettuce and any other vegetables you might have.

Eat dat.
