Making a Salad Dressing With an Immersion Blender:
Add all of the ingredients to a jar and blend until thick and emulsified.
Jar Method for Salad Dressing:
Mince the garlic then combine all ingredients in a jar. Shake vigorously before dressing the salad.
Whisking by Hand:
Mince the garlic, sprinkle with a little salt and by angling the knife, work the garlic and salt together against the cutting board until it forms a paste. Place the garlic paste, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard in a bowl and whisk together. Add either the lemon juice or vinegar and whisk again.
Begin adding the oil, a few drops at a time, and whisk until completely incorporated before adding any more. This process takes a long time. As the dressing begins to emulsify, you can add the oil a little faster.
When you've added 1/2 of the oil, add another tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice. Continue slowly adding 1/2 of the remaining oil, waiting until completely incorporated before adding more. Then, add the remaining vinegar or lemon juice. Finish-up by adding the last of the oil in a thin stream while whisking and then the remainder of the ingredients.
Taste to adjust acidity. Add a little more water to dilute the acidity or a little more sweetener to balance or even out the over all flavor.
Refrigerate any leftover dressing. Makes about 1 cup with a serving size of approximately 3 tablespoons.
