Yes, I know I'm jumping the gun a little, but salad days are almost here! Think of a lovely leafy green salad, or perhaps a tangy pasta salad.

We all have our favorites and I'm very fond of a green salad with marinated baby carrots and a handful of garbanzo beans--delish!                         
No matter what your preference, you need a delicious vinaigrette, and I'm going to share my favorite recipe, right here, right now!
The salad is a snap to make, here are the ingredients:
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 or 3 green onions, chopped (or use 1/4 of a regular onion, chopped)
minced parsley or chives
1/2 cup olive oil
Mix well in a blender or food processor and store in the refrigerator. This is a delicious topping and I know you will enjoy it. You may never buy salad dressing again! Salad days are almost here, in the northeast, what's your favorite salad?
