2 teaspoons cornstarch


1 cup minus 2 tablespoons slightly-thickened chicken broth

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2-3 packets artificial sweetener (such as Splenda)

2-3 teaspoons fresh minced garlic

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

⅔ cup red wine vinegar

For the thickened broth: Remove 2 tablespoons of the chicken broth to a small bowl and whisk in the cornstarch. Add the remaining broth to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. When the broth comes to boil, whisk in the cornstarch mixture and remove from the heat. Cool.

For the dressing: Add mustard, sweetener, garlic, salt and pepper to a medium mixing bowl; whisk until combined. Slowly add and whisk olive oil into mustard until it forms an emulsion. Add and whisk in cooled, slightly-thickened chicken broth. Add vinegar and whisk until combined. Transfer dressing to a pint jar, cover top of jar with plastic wrap and screw on the lid. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake well before serving.

Makes about 2 cups.

Cook's note: Vegetable broth may be substituted for the chicken broth
