2 Tablespoons of something sweet (honey, maple syrup, orange marmalade, apricot preserves, you get the idea) I used maple syrup for this particular salad.
2 Tablespoons of an acid (balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, lemon juice) I used red wine vinegar for this one.
2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard (I just give it 2 good size squeezes from the bottle)
some Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
salt and pepper
