This salad dressing will keep well, refrigerated, for 3-4 days.

2 Tbsp olive oil (divided)
1 large shallot (finely minced)
1 clove garlic (finely minced)
1 Tbsp fresh ginger (finely minced)
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp maple syrup
2 tsp reduced sodium soy or gluten-free tamari sauce
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Place a small skillet over medium high heat.

Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and then the shallots, garlic and ginger. Reduce heat to medium.

Cook for about 5 minutes until the shallots are slightly translucent and remove from the heat to cool. Adjust the heat, if needed, to prevent the garlic from browning.

Use a rubber spatula and remove all of the shallot mixture, including the oil, to a small mixing bowl.

Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, soy sauce and pepper.

Whisk until smooth.
