- 2 tbsp shallots
- 2 tbsp parsley
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

- Whisk olive oil, shallots, parsley, dijon mustard, lemon juice together. Add salt/pepper to taste.

This is an easy, fast, great recipe that works for cocktail parties. I am not very good with actual measurements so here is a rough estimate. I mix and match to my individual taste. Serves 3-4 people as an appetizer. However, this is plenty as one small dish of many hors d'oeuvres at a cocktail party.
