This is a lovely, spicy, warm flavored sauce that can be adapted by adding other ingredients. I often stir in hard-boiled eggs or bread crumbs soaked in vinegar, which adds different textures.
Serve with fish, cooked meats, cheese and salads.
Put the mustard leaves and garlic into a food processor and blend with 2 tsp vinegar. With the processor still running, add the olive oil in a slow stream, season to taste, then add the remaining vinegar if required.
