Author Notes: I should probably credit someone for one part of this recipe but I don't know whom. I caught part of the ingredients list at the end of one tv show years ago and made the rest up.Medooka

  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 1 bunch of fresh mint chopped

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered yellow mustard
  • salt and pepper
  1. Mix all the ingredients for salad except for cheese.
  2. Mix the vinaigrette starting with the dry ingredients. Then add vinegar and honey finish with oil. The mustard should act as an emulsifier and help oil and vinegar come together in a creamy liquid.
