Serves: 6 people

1 teaspoon 5mlDijon mustard
3 tablespoons 45mlSherry vinegar
1 tablespoon 15mlShallot - minced (small)
1 tablespoon 15mlMinced chives
3 tablespoons 45mlOlive oil

Recipe Instructions

* Note: Fleur de sel, a sea salt, is sold at specialty markets and well-stocked supermarkets.

Whisk together the mustard, vinegar, shallot and chives. Whisk in the olive oil until the vinaigrette is slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Place the tomatoes and arugula in a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette. Lightly sprinkle with the fleur de sel and pepper to taste. The tomatoes will release their juices right after tossing; serve this with crusty bread to soak up the juices.
