Agave Dijon Dressing
This has to be my favorite salad dressing, it's so easy to make and it's a million times better than just olive and vinegar (and don't even get me started on store-bought dressings). I love eating it with a still-warm quinoa salad or a spinach salad, or a mix of the two :) it's sweet but still has that salad dressing taste to it. yummmm
¼ cup agave nectar - This is sort of like honey but less sweet and less "heavy" you can find it in the health section of grocery stores or in a health food store.
¼ cup Dijon mustard.
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar (I use balsamic vinegar)
2 cloves garlic
½ teaspoon fine salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Wisk all ingredients in a small mixing bowl until well combined, taste to be sure it isn't too acidic, if it is add more agave nectar.
