1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 cup/60 ml walnut oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Lemon juice, to taste

2 handfuls toasted walnuts, finely chopped

Generous handful barely chopped fresh dill

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Whisk in the walnut oil, drop by drop. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper. If acid is needed, add lemon juice. If more oil needed, add olive oil.
