This is a great twist on any traditional vinaigrette recipe. Using nut oils, any nut oil really, adds a whole new dimension of flavor.



  • walnut oil
  • sherry vinegar
  • Dijon mustard
  • salt & pepper (in this instance, we like to use a fine fleur de sel)


This simple viniagrette can be whipped up in seconds and poured on just about anything. Whisk together 3 parts walnut oil, (you can blend in some olive oil for a less intense flavor), to 1 part Sherry vinegar. Add a dollop of Dijon mustard and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and enjoy!

We love to boil some new potatoes, cool them just a bit, and toss them with chopped red & green onions and fresh chopped parsley. Then fold in the vinaigrette for a lovely warm potato salad.
