6 tablespoons salad oil or olive oil

a big pinch freshly ground black pepper

1 to 2 tablespoons minced green herbs, such as parsley, chives, tarragon, basil or a pinch of dried green herbs (optional)

  1. Either beat the vinegar or lemon juice in a bowl with the salt and mustard until the salt has dissolved, then beat in the oil by droplets and season with pepper, or place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar or food processor and shake or mix vigorously for 30 seconds to blend thoroughly.
