A basic vinaigrette has a 1:3 ratio of acid to oil e.g. 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar to 3 tablespoons olive oil. Many vinaigrettes have dijon mustard and minced shallots, Always season with salt and pepper.

Yes and the mustard acts as an emulsifying agent. Oil and vinegar won't bind together no matter how hard you shake them up. Whisking in a small amount of mustard will help stabilize the vinaigrette.
