(Valerie Ann Worwood – The Fragrant Pharmacy) Pg 440

1 Egg Yolk
½ tsp Dijon Mustard
¼ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Wine Vinegar
± 100ml Olive oil (or Grape seed, Nut oil)

Add all ingredients, except the oil.  Then slowly add the oil and beat well.

Pour over salad and enjoy!


Yield: 1 cup

1/4 cup Tangerine juice
3 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/2 cup Olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste

Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl and slowly whisk in oil.

Season with salt and pepper.



Here’s a delicious and completely no-fat dressing that you must try.  You will need one of those juicing machines which is a great thing to have.  Not only can you reap the health benefits of drinking fresh vegetable juice but you can also use the juice in various other preparations.  This recipe follows the same formula as a basic vinaigrette:  three parts oil to one part acid.  The exception of course, is that carrot juice is substituted for the oil.  For the acid I like fresh squeezed lemon juice. 

6 oz. carrot juice
2 oz. lemon juice
2 large shallots, minced
Salt & pepper to taste

Simply whisk the ingredients and toss with the salad. 
This is an ample amount for four people. 

Adjust the recipe accordingly. 

A variation is to substitute balsamic vinegar for the lemon juice.
