2 tbsp lemon juice (see notes) 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1 clove of garlic minced or pressed 1/2 tsp coconut sugar or sweetener choice 3/8 tsp sea salt (or less/more to taste) Black pepper to taste 1 tbsp chopped chives 3 1/2 tbsp ( 45 g) extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 tbsp water (optional, if using a blender)
You can watch the short video for visual instructions. Add the lemon juice, mustard, garlic, coconut sugar, salt, pepper, and chopped chives to a jar or mug and whisk.
Slowly add in the olive oil and keep whisking until the dressing is emulsified.
For a creamier dressing, blend the mixture with an immersion blender until creamy and add up to 1 1/2 tbsp of water.
