A hint of garlic, a little mustard and a touch of fresh herbs lightly flavor
an elegantly simple dressing that is perfect on a mesclun salad.

2 tbsp olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
2 tbsp red-wine vinegar or lemon juice
2 tbsp strong brewed Earl Grey tea
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste

Skewer the garlic clove onto the tines of a fork, and use to vigorously
blend oil, vinegar or lemon juice, tea and mustard. Taste and season
with salt and pepper. Just before serving, stir in fresh herbs.
