French Dressing

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 cups


  • 2 eggs, coddled (see our How to Coddle Eggs here)
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine all ingredients except the oil. Process for about 2 minutes, or until all of the sugar is dissolved.
