Is Vinaigrette hard to Make? 

In two words, very simple. Use a light olive oil when making vinaigrette. For a Dijon Honey dressing, all you got to do is add Dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey and olive oil with salt and pepper in a small bowl and give it a good whisk. That’s it! No difficult pronouncing ingredients involved.
