Mix two tablespoons Grey Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar. Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like arugula and watercress and endive.

Just remember "3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar." The mustard isn't strictly necessary, but it does help the vinaigrette to hold together longer. Try it with different vinegars, different herbs, even different mustards.

I'm just amazed I'm not the only one who likes or remembers this movie:)

It was a book! Full of venom, wit and recipes.

I just tried this (made with some cheap supermarket Dijon mustard) on some tender, fresh leaf lettuce, and it was lovely.
