    Authentic vinaigrette is not sweet! Do not add sugar, agave or honey. I am French and went to cooking school. The only ingredients you need are: strong French mustard, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Approx. 2 tbsp mustard for 1/2 cup vinegar + 1 cup oil. Add a little salt and pepper, garlic and parsley (or échalote).
