Ingredients

1 cup (4 ounces) walnuts, lightly toasted (see Note)

1 cup water

1/2 cup sherry vinegar

2 tablespoons minced shallots

2 teaspoons fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup imported walnut oil

Directions

  1. Place all of the ingredients, except the oils, in a blender and process on high speed. With the machine running, gradually add the olive and walnut oils until the vinaigrette is emulsified, about 1 minute. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (The vinaigrette can be prepared up to 1 week in advance, covered and refrigerated.)
  2. Note: To toast walnuts, place the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F. oven, stirring occasionally, until toasted, 8 to 12 minutes. Cool completely.
