1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 cup/60 ml walnut oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Lemon juice, to taste

Olive oil, to finish

6 large handfuls mixed greens (recommended: butter lettuce, frisee, rocket, radicchio, endive, romaine, mache, etc.)

2 handfuls toasted walnuts, finely chopped

Generous handful barely chopped fresh dill


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Whisk in the walnut oil, drop by drop. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper. If acid is needed, add lemon juice. If more oil needed, add olive oil. 
  2. Tear the greens into large bite-size pieces in a flat bowl. Add the nuts and dill. Just before serving, add only enough dressing to coat lightly when tossed. Toss and serve.
